I believe you provided yourself with the answer when you replied to
Cynthia's post. The last three words provide you with the answer to
your frustration. ..."accept about myself". You are not accepting
yourself for who you are. Who are you? Go inside and tell that
negative voice to go take a walk, and then ask who you really are. I

open to all the positve things you can tell yourself. What have you
got to lose? Try it though in a quiet place where you won't be
Just in case it takes you awhile to get that negative voice out of
your head here is a little reading material. There is one condition
on this tho. You must read it slow and outloud, from your Heart to
you the woman.
"Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace
there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be
on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and
clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant;they
too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; there are
vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others you
may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and
lesser persons than yourself ..
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in
your own career, however humble, it is a real possession in the
changing fortunes of time .
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of
trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many
persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of
heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not Fein affection. Neither be
cynical about Love; for in the face of all aridity and
disenchantment, it is perennial as the grass. Take kindly the
Council of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But
do not distress yourself with a dark imaginings. Many fears are
borne of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be
gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than
the trees and the stars; you have right to be here. And whether or
not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it
Therefore be at peace with God, what ever you conceived to be. And
what ever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of
life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and
broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world be careful .. Strive
to be happy .
1927 Max Ehrmann
Walk in peace and Grace.
