“the process or fact of being received as adequate, valid, or suitable”
Acceptance has only one path. We either accept or we don’t. There is no in-between. We would only be standing still if not for acceptance. Who we are and acceptance of that enables us to move forward instead of being left behind.
I find mental health treatment only succeeds when the condition is accepted. Acceptance allows someone to understand themselves. To know that what they are feeling, what others are seeing is not permanent. Its a state of mind.
To accept is the beginning of the journey and your story can move forward. Your journey has already begun without you even realising and now is time to get yourself back on track.
