Now, more than ever, is the time for all of us to practice radical self-acceptance so that we can practice finding inner stability despite shaky, unpredictable external circumstances. Ultimately, we are responsible for claiming our hidden wounds, which catapult us to develop individually and in turn together.
Radical self-acceptance is the opposite of avoiding responsibility or giving up in self-defeat. It is about working against old ways of being and knowing that they open the door to healing on the deepest level. In this way we give ourselves the opportunity to integrate our shadow aspects and to live more authentically. If each of us has the courage to exercise radical self-acceptance and to fight, suppress, stun, respond, apologize or deny the urge, we have the ability to become better citizens and contributors to our communities.
