Why Acceptance is CRUCIAL!

🌟 “When you ARGUE with reality, you always lose.” 🌟

If I can count the many times I’ve been stressed in my life, I can say looking back with certainty, they weren’t necessary if I just remembered this principle.Β πŸ€”

Or to put it another way…

🌟 “What upsets people is not things themselves but their JUDGEMENTS about the things.” 🌟

I want to let you know: we can save ourselves a TON of needless suffering if we remember this!Β πŸ‘

🌟 “ACCEPT things as they are, not worse then they are.” 🌟

Often we do this unconsciously in our default mode setting, when we’re not actively paying attention to our thoughts and emotions. It’s why it’s so important we develop our self-awareness.Β πŸ’―

And one way we start doing this is by practicing acceptance.Β πŸ™Œ

🀬 “But Donald! This thing that just happened SHOULD NEVER have happened! How can you ACCEPT such injustices?!” 🀬

To clarify, acceptance doesn’t mean we support something. It means we consciously give neutrality to a situation, to our thoughts, and to our emotions. For a temporary moment, we don’t label it “good” or “bad”. It just is.Β πŸ‘

We accept whatever is in the present moment so we can clear our clouded minds and discern the situation with a much clearer understanding.Β πŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈ

So the next time you become aware of your emotions controlling you, take back the reins, identify the emotions that are arising, and accept them UNCONDITIONALLY. Yes, even acceptance of the “negative” emotions too!Β πŸ’―

Add in some deep breaths, and you’ll be surprised how much faster they’ll pass with acceptance.Β πŸ˜„

“Now…where was I?”Β πŸ’‘
