Quotes on Self-Acceptance


“Acceptance is a tricky word. It comes from a Latin root—ceptere—that means ‘to receive,’ as if to receive a gift.”

“Is it gone yet? Is it gone yet? And every time you ask that question, the answer is no—because you’ve just recalled that thought.”

“Backing up and noticing your thoughts…that’s already way helpful. You’re changing your relationship to the thoughts.”

~ Steven Hayes
