Life is already a challenging thing to navigate, but as an introvert, it can be overwhelming, and sometimes downright unpleasant to interact with extroverts and other people in general. You’re hyper-aware of the micro-expressions on a face or the subtle change in someone’s tone. A sudden drop in a conversation makes you wonder if you’ve done something wrong, and you keep thinking about it for hours, even days later.
Self acceptance is the act or state of accepting oneself and understanding or recognizing one’s own abilities and limitations. Self acceptance is crucial for living a fulfilled life. Authentic, satisfying relationships with other people are impossible to build without self acceptance. Try these exercises to improve self acceptance.
Self esteem has a great impact on our lives. When you think more highly of yourself, you’re in a better position to change your self-concept and your life. You are more likely to succeed in your endeavors. Additionally, you can build stronger relationships because it is much easier to present yourself to others with a strong sense of self esteem.
