Self Acceptance

I could be wrong, but I believe that one point or another in all of our lives, we have felt that we weren’t good enough.  Not sure about psychopaths and narcissists, but possibly even them.  And the measuring stick that we beat ourselves with seems to be, “Everyone else is better than me, even the people I don’t like that aren’t better than me.”  We sometimes wrap the barbed wire of, “why can’t I be more like them even though I can’t stand them and I don’t like what they do” around the stick for added emphasis during beatings. …Details
