Self-acceptance is the art of accepting yourself, warts and all, with your strengths and weaknesses, rather than constantly striving towards change and improvement. It lies at the heart of happiness, because until you accept yourself as the person you are, you cannot be truly content. The author, Windy Dryden, Professor of Psycho-therapeutic Studies and writer of many self-help books, uses realistic, straightforward and refreshingly practical techniques to help anyone who wants to shake off all feelings of anxiety, self-doubt and discontent. He offers stories of many people who have made his approach work for them, and cites examples to show you how to put the ideas into practice, to help you make real and positive change in your life.
