Self Improvement Vs. Self Acceptance

In the last few years I have jumped into the self help/self improvement media pit. It's deep and endless. It's time consuming and it can be pretty deceptive. I'll read a book and feel better until the book is done. You either have to keep reading books to feel good or else you start careening towards the pavement really fast.

It would be great to simply adopt a universal self acceptance. A practice that didn't make me feel like I'm almost where I need to be.

Ah ok, so now I'm going to have to read a year's worth of books about that instead. Great. Maybe it will be great, I don't know.
