Live in the present when you stop trying to change your behavior, and you'll become like a child, becoming comfortable with yourself and ultimately believing in yourself

Why You Should Accept Yourself the Way You Are
Let’s consider for a minute that your life has a rewind button and you go back in time. On retrospection of your childhood, what do you see? Do you see the same ‘you’ that lives in the present? Or are you picturing a different person altogether?

Why You Should Accept Yourself the Way You Are
You started off your life in a jovial manner as a kid, not thinking a lot and doing pretty much whatever you wanted. As you grew up, you started getting trained to behave in a certain way and got punished whenever you diverged. This made you question your behavior and ultimately your own worth over a period of time. In other words, you started getting uncomfortable with being yourself. Today, you no longer are that happy-go-lucky kid with carefree demeanor that you used to be once upon a time. Instead, you think unnecessarily and excessively, more often when it is least required.

Why You Should Accept Yourself the Way You Are
This has resulted in you having deep ingrained inhibitions.

Most of you are threatened by the idea that other people are emotionally and physically concrete than you. While this might be true in some cases, most of the times it is just a hurdle that YOU create. Ask yourself this – even if they are physically or emotionally stronger, what can you do about it? The answer is disheartening but true - nothing. You cannot control others. The only person you can control and change is yourself.

If you have waited for the moment to arrive when you could change yourself, you have my congratulations because the moment has indeed arrived. That moment is NOW. Now is the moment to completely embrace yourself the way you are. Accept the fact that you still have that inner-kid with care a damn attitude alive inside. Stop being an adult for once. Go back to the days of school and be a kid once again. Don’t care what the world thinks of you and be absolutely comfortable in your own skin. You need to realize that layers of rubbish have been piled on your mind over the years. It’s time to shake those piles off and let your mind fly free. Understand that below these layers, your mind still lies pure and beautiful as it was when you were a kid. Instead of taking what others tell you about yourself as gospel, make an effort to know yourself and form opinions of your own. Cease mending yourself all the time and start loving yourself for who you are. Discard the negative thoughts that suppress you and avoid negative self-talk. Enlist your accomplishments and be proud of them, however meager they might be. Get up everyday and tell yourself that you love being who you are.

Believe in yourself and the world will believe in you.
