When we are comfortable in our own skin, we more easily shrug off the opinions of others with respect to how we should live our lives.

We stop using an external yardstick to measure our worth to the world.

Jealousy and envy of others falls to the wayside because we know that we would not step wholesale into anyone else’s shoes . . . leaving our own behind.

Instead of looking to others for guidance on what to be, say, think, and do, we look within and develop the “best” of our unique talents, skills, and abilities.

We realize the goal of life is not to be better than anyone else . . . but to be better than our previous self.

With our increased self-acceptance, we are able to say, with confidence and conviction, Who I Am . . . Is Who I Want To Be.
