Unconditional self-acceptance means loving yourself, as you are, warts and all. Many people evaluate themselves based on their performances. They do a good job at work, get a promotion, and feel great about themselves. On the other hand, if they get demoted after a poor evaluation-or worse-get fired, they feel terrible about themselves. Separating what you do and what happens to you from who you are is key to developing a healthy and realistic view of yourself. This means that whether you get the promotion or not, you are worthwhile and valuable. In fact, your worth and value never changes. It remains the same, no matter what. Consider this before you start berating yourself for your imperfections: You have always been and always will be more than enough.
