@umbra21 - That can be a good philosophy, but I think the best one is to be kind to yourself. I mean, there are probably people out there who are alcoholics and use that line about accepting themselves to justify their behavior. They accept the red nose and ruined liver.
Being kind to yourself, like you would to a child or a friend, means enforcing discipline as well, because to be truly kind is to nurture.
You can't be kind to yourself and still slowly kill yourself with an addiction. But you can be kind to yourself about things you can't control, like acne rosacea or a red nose.
