What acceptance really means

I’ve spend years talking about acceptance, and I had no clue

persistence: firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.

I thought acceptance was being okay with everything.

Acceptance is letting go of resistance.

It’s the absence of resistance to uncertainty, failure, overwhelmingness.

The core of every emotional issue is the belief that it’s not okay. It’s not the presence of it that’s harmful; it’s the resistance to it that ultimately screws us up.
