What Does Acceptance Mean?

Acceptance means that we can find peace with ourselves. In order to accomplish true acceptance, we must totally let go of our past. We must let go of all mistakes and stop having regrets. This is the only way that we can move forward into the present. This is the only way that we will appreciate the opportunities of the future. 


Life is is not always easy.  It’s through the difficult times that we gain our strength and courage. We learn to make new dreams and gain new hope in our current lives.  


Acceptance also teaches us forgiveness, in others, as well as in ourselves. Too often we find forgiveness for the mistakes of others, but not for ourselves.  We can be a harsher judge on our selves than we are on others. We are not and never will be perfect. That is a fact. The best way to overcome our imperfections is through acceptance.


Acceptance is a very long, sometimes difficult road, to finding peace. The past should be like what the wonderful EXers taught me to “take what you need and let go of the rest” .


Acceptance is believing that although you may not have always done what was best, you learned from it. They say true character isn’t formed when you are at your best. I believe it’s formed when you learn from your mistakes and become a better person.


I accept whatever life throws my way. I am encouraged by the fact that acceptance is a great defense and a great way to help us to believe in ourselves, as well as believing in others. 


I know now that I accept my imperfections as they are a part of who I am.

We we can find peace and serenity in acceptance.


I hope you accept yourselves and find joy and peace that will continue throughout your lifetime.
