How to embrace your flaws

We all have heard a phrase from our childhood that ‘Nobody is Perfect’. Everyone has some downsides in them and it’s absolutely true we all are born with some downsides, but it doesn’t mean that we have to die with our downsides. Since we are all born with the power of acceptance, we must also accept our flaws and be proud of them.

How to embrace your downsidesYes, it’s okay to be less than perfect.

But now it seems like no one in this imperfect world wants to accept themselves in their own way, they are all focused only on being a purely perfect person. Let me ask you a question: Why be a perfectionist in a world that is inherently imperfect? But yes, somehow I know the answer to this question that we ourselves don’t want to be perfect, we just follow the empty advice and opinions of others to get accepted. Another point which arises here is that when we can hear and accept the opinions or advises of others then why can’t we simply accept our downsides and love them?

Here are some ways to help you love and hug yourself more:

1) KNOW YOUR flaws.

The first step to admitting your faults is to know them. You should be aware of those things that you are not sure about. After recognizing the flaws, you should proudly admit them, but things take time, we will also take the time to recognize and accept our flaws, but after accepting them, you may notice a change in your life yourself.

6) LISTEN TO YOUR HEART.

The next important thing is to give weight to our heart. Try to understand what your heart is saying and follow it with passion. They allow you to define your flaws. Don’t let your flaws define you. Be proud of yourself and start loving yourself because till the time you won’t love yourself, nobody else will.

Finally, I would like to say BE YOURSELF, BE PROUD and NOT BE A GUIDE.

How to embrace your downsides

Why is it necessary to learn to embrace one’s downsides separately? Aren’t we all adapt to living with the downsides we possess alongside our virtues?

The turning point is here:Virtues do not interrupt our functioning as drastically as defects.

We all live with our unique share of imperfections. But most of the time it’s hard not to accept this truth. No matter how much we try to balance our compliments, accomplishments, achievements and successes in life with our flaws, we will always consider it insignificant compared to our flaws, no matter how few they are.

Since we live in a society that constantly confronts one person with another, we accept our faults, forgiving ourselves for our failures and getting out of guilt becomes a very difficult task. We do not realize that the basis for comparison is often inadequate. This is to remind you once again that a bird cannot be compared to a fish, based on its ability to swim.

The crux of this principle is that each person is unique with a distinct set of imperfections and near-perfection.If you want to reach a utopian state of being, you will be deeply disappointed.

You can agree with me that once you have grasped and overcome your fears and are ready to rule the world. Our flaws, insecurity and adversity control us because they are underlined by fear: the fear of disapproval, humiliation, failure, being left behind and not loving. Letting flaws affect us negatively makes it difficult for us to be happy or maintain a sense of success.

This guide will help you change your perspective on why it’s better to understand, deal with, and accept your flaws rather than ignoring them and running away from them.

Here are 8 tips for falling in love with adversity and living in peace with it:

1. Investigate what is bothering you.

AAristotleHe said,"Conoscere te stesso è l’inizio di ogni saggezza"unless andUntil you find the cause of your insecurity or what exactly is bothering you, you can never bring peace of mind.

Introspection is one of the most important steps in coming to terms with yourself. Introspection is the conscious process of examination of one’s own thoughts and feelings. The process of introspection relies exclusively on observation of one’s mental state.

Sit down and try to gain objective knowledge of what is currently bothering you.It could be anything: career lag, accent, physical appearance, failures, lack of confidence, or low self-esteem.

2. Conceptualize the flaws.

A definiujesz wady? Aie są jego cechy? What do you put on your flaw list?

If you want to reach the heights of perfectionism, don’t lose your rational ideas about your flaws. There are so many things that are not under your control and therefore hardly ever on your flaw list. Your physical appearance, your gestures, your tone of voice, your manners are just some of them.

Your idea of ​​the flaws should be clear. Use your reasoning skills to list aspects of your personality that can be transformed and improved.

3. Make a list of your strengths and strengths.

We are so used to being criticized that we often forget that flaws are an aspect of your personality that cannot determine your worth.

Achallenging as it might get, force yourself to make a list of all your strong points – your achievements, your talents, your abilities and your positive traits. Try to include all trivial points on your list, however irrelevant it may seem. You should also consider general characteristics such as honesty, credibility, empathy, honesty, loyalty, and emotional maturity. Put this in a place where you can review your strengths on a daily basis.

You’ve come a long way in life, and it’s all thanks to your efforts.

4. Avoid negative talk.

A negative conversation with yourself is any internal dialogue or voice of a critic, from the inside, almost like a critical person, constantly reminding yourself of your insecurity, flaws, flaws and those aspects that ultimately limit your potential for reach the zenith.

Negative chatter should be avoided at all costs.

Mainly because these negative self-conversations follow the path of common cognitive distortions, such ascatastrophism, over-generalization, over-personalization, etc. The negative self can seem downright spiteful, like “I’m not worth anything good in this world.” or it may sound as reasonable as “I should avoid this because I can’t, just to spare myself the humiliation.”

Either way, speaking negatively to yourself will always highlight your flaws and cast shadows on your strength.

Whenever a little voice is expected to speak, silence it by reinforcing positive speech such as “I can do it if I try.” “I am able to achieve more.” Gradually, it will be easier for you to cope with your shortcomings.

We all have heard a phrase from our childhood that ‘Nobody is Perfect’. Everyone has some downsides in them and it’s absolutely true we all are born with some downsides, but it doesn’t mean that we have to die with our downsides.

Embrace your flaws

"Gli svantaggi sono solo paure anticipate…
I used to create fear by comparing myself with others
my younger past and my not yet manifested greatness.
I learned that if we feel trapped inside
No amount of money or praise from the outside will ever make us feel free.
So destroy what no longer matters, enter your glory
share your story and your true colors.
Il vero successo è nel modo in cui ci vediamo".

– Renee Airya

Have you ever gone through a powerful journey that allowed you to truly embrace your flaws?

Renee Airya – brain tumor survivor, soulful author and award-winning international speaker – has certainly done just that.

In this uplifting speech by Renee at A-Fest Mexico in Mindvalley, she shares an extraordinary story of personal empowerment in one of her darkest moments, from paralysis to liberation.

Renee underwent a life-threatening operation that left the right side of her face paralyzed and doctors told her there was no way to recover.

Unsure whether the voice was truly hers or that of a higher power, she confidently answered the doctors’ concerns.

"Ho guardato il mio medico e ho detto che non so come accadrà, ma tornerò a sorridere… mi do 6 mesi per muovere il viso".

A miracle happened. By changing her mindset, improving her self-esteem, and trusting her intuition and beliefs, Renee was able to go on a powerful and epic journey of healing.

Our favorite quotes from this conversation

(1)

“When you hide, you create more shame.
It means you tell yourself
you are becoming more and more unlovable.
But when you share, you allow the light
shine with shame. And I firmly believe
che tutti possiamo diventare perfetti a causa delle nostre mancanze".

(2)

“The way we choose to address our shortcomings
it will actually lead to a life of success, strength and health …
or self-destruction, insecurity and shame …
Vices are part of human nature ».

(3)

Could it be that flaws are the door to our honesty?
Could it be that the drawbacks are the access points?
regain unshakable confidence?
Is it possible that flaws are the golden key?
to discover our uniqueness?
Se puoi rispondere "Sì" a una di queste domande,
how can you start today to start expressing yourself?
with more honesty in the world?

(4)

“There is a lot of liberation and a lot of freedom
find yourself sharing your true colors with others,
your light and your shadows.

(5)

"Non sei perfetto nonostante i tuoi difetti,
but thanks to them.
You don’t have to be pretty or look good to be beautiful.
La bellezza è solo pelle, ma il bagliore è eterno."

How to embrace your downsides

How to embrace your downsides

We do this by hosting real-world events and creating world-class, high-quality programs in diverse areas of transformation, including mind, body and performance.

I’ve always believed physical downsides are like mosaic pieces. Taken individually, they can look a little lumpy and out of place. But when put together, each piece creates art … sometimes a masterpiece. A akceptujemy nasze fizyczne wady w społeczeństwie dążącym do perfekcji?

Word ‘downside’ in itself is misleading. It’s an imperfection claimed by society. You don’t think your nose is big until someone tells you, or your hair looks great until an advert exclaims it needs more volume. There’s no real truth: every imperfection is just an opinion a person has formed and believed. So, for every person thinking one body is too curvaceous, small or short, another believes it’s perfect.

I know scientific research suggests humans are attracted to specific symmetry, yet some studies also note we’re attracted to people who share similar features and genes. However, I believe that most of us are used to following the ideals of the media; pay too much attention to ads.

While everyone has their own ideal of beauty, countries also see a favorable aesthetic. For example, we stereotypically treat the French as a loving simplicity and believe that Brazilians love sun-kissed skin. Asocial media is global, it’s collectively put billions of us together and chosen one Instagram look for us all to follow. This is arguably damaging our self-esteem because we’re losing identity trying to represent one ideal. A ludzie na całym świecie mogą wyglądać tak samo?

When you don’t love your imperfections

Uncertainty creates low self-esteem and a sense of deification. Disliking your appearance often leads to over-admiration for others – others who we believe are ‘better’. Psychology Today discusses how feeling bad can be comforting; knowledge that becomes habit. It is known that this often happens when we are afraid to make changes. It’s easier to tell ourselves we’re failures who can’t achieve our goals, rather than take a leap of faith.

Should Physical downsides be changeable?

Some physical downsides (like acne scars) have a cosmetic cure. While others (like my big forehead) are with us for life. In theory, some downsides can and should be worked on. A spiteful tendency and quick-tempered rage for example, isn’t healthy to embrace.

I’m not against plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures as I understand we may feel a downside affects our confidence. With that beingHe said, downsides will always be with us. A plastic surgeon cannot produce a downsideless canvas. You can take the best eyes, lips and cheekbones in the world, put them together and keep looking for flaws. Physical downsides can modify (providing you adapt them for yourself), but the term never quite leaves a human.

Take a step back

It’s easy to objectify and blow micro-issues out of proportion: that spot on your chin – is a spot on your chin. To you it’s a spot invading your entire face and making you look like a Dalmatian. Kendall Jenner has been photographed multiple times with spots, as have many other celebrities over the years. Cameron Diaz is famous for severe acne and went on to be a successful model, once considered the highest paid actress in Hollywood.

Let your physical downsides empower you

I have only recently begun to accept my scoliosis (curvature of the spine). Because I didn’t want people to feel sorry for me, I never expressed sadness towards the condition. I’ve always made my spine surgeries seem fascinating and exciting. Every year in high school I went to the hospital for further operations and after recovery. It felt like I was fighting a battle and winning a war every year.

After my final operation, my surgeonHe said,“That’s it, you’re recovered”. I lived without knowing what to do. My hips are uneven (visible if I didn’t angle them in photos), my back is not completely straight, and there are two permanent scars across my spine.

How to embrace your downsides

When I was a model, no photographer took pictures of my back. This was the case up until one specific studio session. When photographing myself in a bikini, my back was to the camera, tilting my head to the side. Although it’s not my favourite photo, the image reminds me to feel good about my scars and body. If you can find strength in your downsides and see an empowering story behind them, you can likely begin to feel better.

Take a look at your story

I love photo albums. I love trying to recognize what similar traits I share with loved ones. My grandma I discovered, has my face shape – one I’ve spent years wishing to change. A marzyłem o wyrzeźbionych kościach policzkowych i wyraźnej szczęce. Only then would I stop looking like her.

We all have interesting stories and people from our past. We’re beyond unique! And for each man and woman who married and fell in love with a person to help create your family’s generations, they potentially fell in love with the very traits you hate.

Focus on what you love

One day I received the book “Seeds for the soul”. It’s become my bedside table inspiration, whenever I feel confused about life, uncertain, sluggish or insecure. In one chapter, the book discusses feelings, noting we’re usually more troubled by how we think we should be feeling as oppose to the feelings themselves. For example, when you’re going through a painful breakup, your sadness can turn into anger that you still have feelings for your ex. The book suggests that we should get rid of our emotions and accept them as they are. And that’s the attitude I believe people should have with their looks.

To focus on your best qualities, why not write down all of your positive physical qualities, including those that others have complimented you on? There’s no shame in loving your appearance; it’s not a crime show kindness to yourself. And if a loved one or a stranger on the street deserves your kind words, so do you.

How to embrace your downsides

Every human being is a unique individual, but most of us try to imitate others out of a desire to conform to the pattern, believing that the way we are is not enough. We strive for perfection by imitating what we consider exceptional. Ci confrontiamo costantemente con gli altri, grazie ai quali non ci sentiamo mai soddisfatti e a nostro agio con noi stessi.

But the truth is, no one is perfect. Everyone has downsides, and that’s not bad at all. Defects are actually what makes us human, individual beings with unique characteristics. Imagine that everyone is perfect … how bad would this world be? It would be pure monotony, the most boring place to live.

The moment you compare yourself to others, you humble yourself in your own eyes, unable to recognize your uniqueness. When you seek perfection, wanting to become different and unique, you will always feel disappointed and dissatisfied, because deep inside you are a different and unique being that you want to become. And the less you embrace your downsides and accept yourself just the way you are, the more you fuel your inner battle against yourself, causing a continuous state of anguish in your psyche.

You are quite as you are – a unique expression of the universe. Not better than others, not worse than others, but different in his own way.

How to embrace your downsides

Have you ever heard of the phrase “No one is perfect” in the sense that you are human because no one is perfect? And if we have any imperfections … we’re still perfect. It is true that no one is perfect, but your art of addressing all imperfections can be perfect. Society and our culture require everything to be so perfect and ultimately this race begins with our birth … for example, society wants the perfect bride, the perfect home, the perfect job, perfect grades, perfect hair, complexion perfect …!

Isn’t it nauseating… because the truth is nobody is perfect! The only way to get out of this shit is to learn the art of embracing all your perfect imperfections. With this blog, let’s see what we can do to embrace our perfect imperfections.

A objąć wszystkie swoje doskonałe niedoskonałości:

1. Make a list of your achievements that you are proud of!

The first step to loving your imperfections is to make a list of what you have achieved through your hard work. I still remember that time when I was at a college dance competition and everyone was telling me that seniors are more talented than me … no one is going to like my dance. But I continued to perform and I won the second prize in the competition and from that moment I am really proud! Likewise, list all the things you are proud of. Additionally, you can also mention good deeds in which you have helped or supported people in a great cause.

Once you have listed all of your achievements, take a moment to be proud of yourself because you have earned them with your hard work. All of this has to do with self-compassion.

2. Make a list of your weaknesses and turn them into strengths

How to embrace your downsides

After you are proud of all your accomplishments, it is time to turn your weaknesses into strengths. Take your time and list all your weaknesses. Now, in the face of these weaknesses, test yourself and focus on how this can be turned into strength. For example, I was afraid of public speaking and was kind of an introvert. But I’ve worked on it and now I’m not afraid to speak in public. Likewise, build your list and turn it into strength.

3. Time to reframe your thoughts

What do you do when you experience the flow of negative thoughts … let them flow well! But, now it’s time to stop the flow of the negative thoughts. The best way to stop thinking negatively is to turn negativity into positivity. I just want to say that every situation has two phases, one negative and one positive. So why not always look on the bright side. And if you can’t find positivity, you can just rephrase your thinking. For example, I can’t do it? I will definitely do it.

4. Make friends with your inner critic

How to embrace your downsides

When I speak, make friends with your inner critic, ask the inner critic to remain silent and focus on the true goal. This way you can truly confront your inner critic and perfectly embrace all your imperfections like a pro player! Haha I’m kidding! Try this method and let me know if it is effective or not.

5. Self-acceptance: Love your downsides

So what if you are thin, fat, short, too light, too dark, not so bright … your physical appearance really matters. I don’t think so. Therefore, if you think your imperfections are due to your physical appearance, you are completely wrong. Perfect imperfections come from your nature, your personality, your goodness. So don’t let the world deceive you. And be smart enough to make valuable choices. Physical appearance should never matter. Self-acceptance means falling in love with your downsides.

Our blog is finished. I believe my blog was powerful enough to fall in love with all its perfect imperfections.

Comment and let me know. Thanks for reading and fall in love with yourself.

Love from Calm Sage!

How to embrace your downsides

We all have things we don’t like about ourselves but do you embrace your downsides or do you obsess about fixing them? Many of us have a hard time accepting the things we perceive as imperfections, but have you ever thought about embracing them and really having them? Asilly as it may seem, the relationship that you have with yourself can make a huge difference in the relationship you have with others. Learning to love yourself takes some time but it is possible and I’ve got 9 convincing reasons to embrace your downsides and learn to appreciate yourself more!

Summary:

1 You deserve love

One of the top reasons to embrace your downsides is because you deserve love! Many times downsides are associated with negative emotions and harboring those negative emotions can prevent us from fully accepting and loving our downsides and ourselves for who we are. To love ourselves completely, we must accept and appreciate ourselves without conditions, physical or emotional imperfections, or otherwise.

2 You deserve comfort with yourself

Accepting your downsides means that you are totally comfortable with yourself which is a beautiful thing! I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of people both men and women who aren’t the best dancers or the best looking but they totally own their downsides and are comfortable with how they move and look and it shows! Of course, it takes time to be so sure, and maybe they pretend that, one way or another, feeling totally comfortable with yourself is an incredible feeling!

3 You can’t control everything

Having a gift for the obvious, I had to mention another reason to embrace your downsides is that you can’t control everything anyway. Is it really feasible for anyone to correct every single downside that they or someone else doesn’t like about them? Obviously not! I don’t care how much time or money you have, you downsides or what you perceive as downsides make you who you are. You were born with different traits and traits for a reason, not to separate and spend your life trying to change or hide these things!

Altre 4 persone adorano i tuoi "difetti"

Another reason to accept your downsides is that I’ll bet that someone admires that characteristic about you whether you know it or not! I can’t even say how many times I’ve seen others get compliments for things they said they hate themselves! It happened to me too and I know it happens to a lot of people. What you perceive as a downside is something that someone loves or would pay to have!

5 Your perception is your reality

Amentioned in the previous reason to embrace your downsides, have you ever thought about whether what you see as a downside is just your perception and not the world’s? Of course, your opinion matters and I am not suggesting that you only listen to others, as other people may have distorted perceptions and opinions as well. What I am saying is to consider whether your imperfection is really even a downside. Even if you have a trait that isn’t necessarily common, that doesn’t mean it’s a flaw!

6 Different is good

Part of accepting your downsides is realizing that being different sets you apart from others, and that is a good thing! Imagine if we all had the same nose, eyes, mouth and body – how boring would that be ?! One of the reasons celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian are so popular and admired is because they were as beautiful as any other celebrity, if not more, physically, quite different from what Hollywood traditionally considered beautiful!

7 Nobody is perfect

You’ve probably heard this logic to embrace your downsides before, no one is perfect and it’s so true! Even the people you think are so perfect aren’t really. It is so amazing that some celebrities even reveal their photos before and after Photoshop so you can see that they too have characteristics that others perceive as veiled and magically erased imperfections. A perfect nose, no cellulite or a taller height will not make us blissfully happy or make our life perfect.

8 Perfect the way you are

Another great reason to accept your downsides is to consider who ever said you’re not perfect the way you are? Okay, so I just finished saying that no one is perfect in every way, but I wonder why you don’t think you’re not cat pajamas anymore? Has a family member, friend, or random person told you they don’t think something isn’t up to par? Whatever the reason, contemplate whether it’s you who sees this feature as a downside or it’s someone else’s problem.

9 Be unstoppable

Want more motivation to embrace your downsides? Ok, think about this, has having a downside ever stopped anyone from achieving their goals or living the life they want? There are so many musicians, scientists, businessmen, models, actresses, etc. that had doors slammed in their face due to having a perceived downside, a problem that someone else had with them and perhaps they were aware of too, but they still moved forward and achieved their goals. J. K. Rowling, Marilyn Monroe, Emily Dickinson and April Hulmes are just some of the many women who were unstoppable and you can be too!

Has this list of reasons to embrace your downsides changed your mind even a little bit? I hope you realize how special you are and that your life is what you choose to make of it and that you can choose which direction you want to go! You are unlimited and unique, love yourself for who you are exactly as you are now!
