Acceptance is one of those feelings that are grossly misunderstood. Many think that adopting an attitude of acceptance means passivity or the condoning of violent or malicious acts. This not the case. Acceptance merely means to acknowledge a given situation ‘as is’ and stop experiencing feelings of resistance that only deplete your energy and cause you to feel stressed.
This allows you to remain engaged in life without uselessly forcing your own agenda. Instead of using precious energy to resist or fight in vain, you are open to many more possible and potent outcomes. It is truly amazing to watch what happens when you truly embrace acceptance perhaps the most amazing thing is that so many problems simply fall away!
Practicing acceptance can be a powerful stress management tool!
