#selfcheck: We set the standard for our self-acceptance. ● What behaviors are you changing in your relationship in order to be more acceptable to your partner? ● When you did make those changes, were you more accepted or were there more changes you needed to make?
It's not so easy to feel good about yourself when you have flaws, make mistakes and experience failures in life. That's why it can be so easy to adapt to what others want us to be and do when they point out these negative things.
I'm not saying to ignore your faults or don't make changes that will create better life experiences. But start with feeling good about just being you, as a start.
Changing yourself should be a personal preference, not the requirement to be accepted.
That's why it's even more important to practice self-acceptance through the good and bad times.
It goes both ways, if don't accept your partner and require them to change who they are, you need to check yourself on that as well.
