Neale Donald Walsch Quotes About AcceptanceQuotes about: Acceptance
You are okay just the way you are... and so is everybody else. Sometimes we want the kind of acceptance that we are not willing to give. Yet life is a two-way street, and we do so much better when we send to others what we want them to send to us. Just a gentle reminder today that you are wonderful, and the person right next to you is, too!
And the reason is found in the first lie-the lie which you hold as the truth about God-that God cannot be trusted; that God's love cannot be depended upon; that God's acceptance of you is conditional; that the ultimate outcome is thus in doubt. For if you cannot depend on God's love to always be there, on whose love can you depend? If God retreats and withdraws when you do not perform properly, will not mere mortals also?
Those who love others
grandly are those who love themselves grandly. Those who have a high
toleration and acceptance of others are those who have a high
toleration and acceptance of themselves. You cannot show another a part
of you that you cannot show yourself. Therefore, begin where all
growth, where all evolution, where all love must begin; with the person
in the mirror.
