Accepting What Is
Often the times we think are the worst parts of our lives end up becoming the most transformational and empowering.
Alternatively, things that may seem great in the moment can turn out awful.
The point is we never truly know where life will take us.
That’s why it’s so important to be careful about the stories you’re telling yourself in the moment.
When you decide something is terrible or wrong, it only makes you feel worse.
You add layers of shame, self-pity, guilt, or resentment on top of whatever you’re already going through.
Consider this: what’s happening in your life right now is supposed to be happening to you.
How do I know?
Because it’s what’s actually happening – it’s your reality.
When you resist or fight reality, you’re fighting with something you don’t have control over, and you’ll lose that fight every time.
Try practicing acceptance instead.
Choosing acceptance doesn’t mean you won’t change or set boundaries; it means you get to feel and experience acceptance in that moment instead of frustration or anger. When you accept what is, you see solutions and possibilities more clearly.
So, what would it look like to trust your life as it’s unfolding? To trust yourself? To trust that even at your worst, there’s a gift in all of this that perhaps you can’t see yet.
Learn to work with your circumstances, not against them, for your own sake.
