Acceptance

A lot of people think acceptance is the same as permitting. But it’s not. Not at all.

Let’s take your worst relationship as an example. Perhaps that person lied. Perhaps that person cheated. Perhaps that person was abusive. Perhaps that person was hurtful. Perhaps that person was disrespectful.

By accepting that the person of your worst relationship is who he showed you to be, you will then be operating in reality. And reality is a good place to be.

You accept that James is a liar. You accept that Charlie cheated. You accept that John was abusive. You accept that Craig was hurtful. You accept that Joe was disrespectful.

And then you act based on what you’ve been shown. You don’t trust liars, cheats, abusers, hurtful and disrespectful people with your heart. End of story.

It’s when you don’t accept a person for who they are that you run into trouble. It’s actually your arguing with reality that causes you suffering.
