Hi, I've read a bit of your blog. Your post about acceptance is so wonderful, thank you.
There is so much stuff in your post that I am trying to learn myself, too. For me it is the hardest to accept what I am and what I need. I too often try to please, even if some things are just part of me and I should not try to change them for others. I try to change them even when nobody has asked me to, because I assume they won't be accepted by others. I think a lot of this has to do with being afraid. But I have to try to stop doing this because it is not beneficial to anybody (least to myself).
