self-acceptance:a challenge and a gift

Recently, I attended a funeral for one of my aunts. After the funeral, all of us gathered at a local restaurant. I found myself sitting next to the pastor. Everything seemed to be going well until he asked me about my job.
For a moment, I was terrified. How could I explain that I am a psychic medium to the pastor of a somewhat conservative church? Somehow, my tongue came untied. I explained that although I started out in the social work field, I found that there are other ways to help people. I feel much more comfortable with telling people what I do than when I first began. I have learned to accept myself for who I am, and I’ve learned to accept myself exactly as I am at this point in my life. Do I always get it right? Hell no! Am I still harder on myself than I need to be at times? You bet!
However, I am learning to accept myself exactly as I am in this moment.
