Undoubtedly, we are closest to ourselves, and will live with ourselves for a lifetime, thus it is indispensable for us to learn about ways to know and accept ourselves in each stage of our life. How we take care of ourselves and accept ourselves is embodied in our daily company with ourselves, including whether we healthily go through every day, smoothly accomplish daily assignment and task, and stay calm in face of various influences.
Meantime, it is also embodied in how we get along with others and the surroundings, whether we can sincerely concern for others and the surroundings we live in, both of which can be closely associated with how we treat ourselves.
Taking care of ourselves is actually a matter of awareness of our emotions, awareness of the necessity to do something to make us feel better, and its goal lies in adherence to our needs and baseline, lies in proper management of our emotions within a controllable and steady range, and lies in the pursuit for a higher-quality and more purposeful life.
A truly happy acceptance of ourselves is to accept all of ourselves, including the shining points and the deficiencies which together make up who we are, owing to these individual characteristics, each one of us exist uniquely, and only by full awareness of our advantages and disadvantages and full acceptance of them can we really live a highly-satisfactory life with quality.
