In turn, this directly affects our mental well-being and has been recognized as a vital and crucial step in well-being and finding success, joy and happiness.
On the other hand, when we determine we’re not good enough to be accepted and loved as we are, we condition which alienates ourselves from our authentic self.

So to avoid this, let’s embrace ourselves.
