Accepting unacceptable realities is a helpful tool in lifeWe all wish for several things and want to ensure that things happen according to our wishes. But it is a universal truth that life is uncertain and when something unpredictable happens, we don't want to really accept it. And, it is quite obvious that it is hard to practice acceptance when your wishes were different. But sometimes we have to choose and accept it even if we don't want to. And it is a reality and we can't change it.
When we have some wishes and somethings happens against them, we have two options either accept what's happening or refuse it. In the first case when we choose to accept things as they are. We feel positive and have a peaceful mind. On the other hand, if we choose to refuse things that are happening against our wishes, we will have to struggle which can make us miserable.
Though difficult but acceptance is a choice. It is also true that acceptance is not the end of things. Actually, by accepting things, we learn the power of acceptance.
However, accepting things does not mean that we are agreeing with it or happy with it but just accepting it as we have no other choice. Accepting things also doesn't mean that we will stop our efforts to change them. Actually, we can start our efforts to change the situation anytime. Further acceptance is not a failure. Accepting things shows the strength of a person who can take the challenge of accepting things that are unacceptable and face them with courage and move forwards to his/her new success journey.
In fact, acceptance is just an acknowledgement of the particular unacceptable happening situation. Fighting with reality is not good because it is too exhaustive and futile. So, we should try to accept the unacceptable reality and try to relax and live a peaceful life.
