It is important to recognize “It is what it is” and stop denying it or railing against it; even if we don’t like “it” or “it” scares us. Our choice is to either continue on as though nothing is wrong, a waste of energy, or we can accept the reality of our circumstance.
Acceptance is not detachment. When we accept ourselves and what’s troubling us, it allows us to see the situation or our circumstance more clearly. Rather than a knee jerk reaction, we can respond in a thoughtful measured manner. Recognition and acceptance gives us more choices.
