Self Acceptance!!

Hello, it's been a long time since I posted on here, I have been so busy with school but I'm back (hopefully). Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend about the topic of self-acceptance and I realised that in 2015 there are people that still have an issue with accepting themselves for who they are and that saddening.

What is self-acceptance?? 
To me, self-acceptance is not just about loving yourself, it means accepting your flaws and being contented with who you are. I personally don't believe in peer pressure; maybe it because I have never been a victim it just has to do with intention (I guess). Every human deserves the right to be happy and doing something because it's an ongoing trend is not going to lead to happiness. In life, it's sometimes ok to be selfish when it comes to loving yourself and putting yourself first. It is a waste of time to want to be someone else. Loving yourself keeps you sane and happy.

Going on social media and talking to different individuals, it came to my attention that for some people, it is easier to try and jump on a bandwagon rather than set out to distinguish yourself from the crowd, which kind of breaks my heart. It's hard for me to tell how they feel because I never had to struggle with self-acceptance. I can't speak for everyone, but with the knowledge I have acquired over the years, I can try to help you learn how to accept yourself for who you are and be happy.
