“Without Acceptance there is very little fulfilment”
Okay so this can be a confusing one, for me this was a hard word to grasp. I was always able to say this word but there was never any real acceptance behind it, i never truly accepted anything.
For example when it comes to forgiveness and we tell the other person we forgive them but even after we say that the relationship does not go back to how it was, a lot of the times this is because we have not accepted what has happened and we cannot move on, we forgive for the wrong reasons.
Another example, lets take our work situation. I can be so busy, stressed and complaining that I am busy but really the problem is me not accepting my situation for what it is and knowing I have the power to change this situation if I cannot accept it for what it is. I need to be able to accept where I am today with all of my responsibilities and also my flaws, because I have them, but do not want to accept them a lot of the time.
I need to accept that I have no control over people, places and things. I only have control over my own actions and no one else’s. This alone gives me massive freedom. I have tried to control everything around me for years and it never worked and never ever will.
“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.”
For me I must accept where people are in life and not try to change them that isn’t my job,
If I feel a person is not good for me then I need to accept it and let them go.
