Cultivating self-acceptance whilst focusing on personal growth has been a tenet of well-being since the time of Aristotle in Ancient Greece. And it is just as, if not more, relevant for us today.
You cannot find fulfillment without first knowing what fulfillment looks like to you.
You cannot show empathy and compassion to others without first showing empathy and compassion to yourself.
You cannot correctly interpret what you sense in the external world without first correctly sensing what lies in your internal world.
Self-wisdom is the prerequisite to worldly wisdom.
