    as

    Do these sound natural and have the same meaning?

    You need to accept yourself as what you are.

    Re: as

    Hehe,I seem have never noticed it.
    I guess the 1st sentence emphasizes one's occupation or social status or position.
    I guess the 2nd sentence emphasizes one's behavior or disposition or temper.




    wait master!

    [QUOTE=Taka;846607]Do these sound natural and have the same meaning?

    With regard to n.1 how about:
    a.) Accept yourself FOR WHO you are


    You could also say

    b) Accept yourself FOR WHAT you are


    Your sentence n.2 sounds fine to me.

    Hope it helps
