Microsoft with TG Consulting: Harnessing your Diversity

Self-Acceptance is concerned with how well we treat ourselves despite our imperfections, insecurities, and mistakes. We all have a natural tendency to feel a sense of belonging as it gives us a feeling of happiness. Much of the time we look to our family, friends, and society for acceptance. Unfortunately, at times we look for acceptance in the wrong places, in unhealthy relationships and connections which can leave us feeling bad about ourselves. What would it look like if we could find acceptance in ourselves without having to seek it first from others? We have so much to celebrate about our lives, learning about our qualities and recognising them allows us to be happy and to live with a sense of confidence and purpose.
