Accept the fact that you are human and not perfect. Give up the idea that having the ideal body, bank account, or bubbling personality are necessary in order for someone to love you. Accept yourself for who you are and all the good qualities you have to offer. There is someone who will accept you and love you for the real you, not for who you desire to be. That does not mean we are not to strive to improve ourselves, just not to set unreasonable expectations. The idea that we are undesirable if we are not perfect needs to be trashed. Be proud of who you are now and what you will be as you move forward.
