Acceptance

Acceptance is the answer to all of my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find that some person, place, thing or situation is unacceptable to me. Moreover, I can find no peace until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being the exact way that it is supposed to be at this moment. Unless I accept life completely as the way it is, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate on what needs to change in me, not on what needs to be changed in the world.  

This is an edited version of how to handle acceptance and I believe this version can help any person. No matter what you are dealing with, we all have to accept what is going on around us. It is out of our control! Only we can handle how we react to the people, places, and things around us.

Our peace of mind is on us. No one else is in charge of our thoughts or how we are going to be affected, it is all ones’ perception. So rather than being quick to reply, take a step back and acknowledge that your thoughts are your own; there is no need to share. Especially if it is a negative response!

No one is perfect and judging others never makes us feel better!
