How to accept yourself

I’m sick of living a life that other people have told me I should live. Today I want to talk about self-acceptance, but not just your physical appearance or how much money you make – it’s more than that. It’s accepting yourself as a person in general because we’re all unique individuals with our own quirks and qualities that nobody can replace. The first step to self-acceptance is recognizing that you deserve it. But how do we deal with the negative thoughts in our head that tell us otherwise? I’ve been there too. It’s a battle of mind over matter when it comes to accepting yourself for who you are. I want you all to know that you deserve love from others and most importantly love for yourselves so please take a few minutes out of your day just for YOURSELF!


  • Accepting yourself is an ongoing process with no end date
  • You’re not perfect and that’s okay- don’t try to be someone you’re not
  • It’s okay if you don’t like everything about your life or yourself right now- all that will change with time and practice

I’m Taylor Daniele


My core belief is that you can carve your own path. Unafraid to stand in the gap, I started Healing In Hindsight™ after noticing that there weren’t many millennials of color that I could connect with. Being of black and thai descent, I was diagnosed at 25 with type 2 diabetes. I found the transition into managing my condition difficult. My hope is to have thoughtful conversations about how anyone living with diabetes can thrive by finding a way to manage that fits them.
