Acceptance Will Set You Free-easeljs

Self-Improvement "We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." -Carl Jung We want what we want, when and how we want it and we want it now! And when things don’t go the way we want; we aren’t very happy about it. Has that ever happened to you? Or, should I say, who hasn’t it happened to? The fact that it happens to EVERYBODY doesn’t necessarily change the fact it doesn’t feel very good when it happens to you. When you want something so badly and it doesn’t work out they way you want you can do one of two things; you can accept it and begin the process of moving on to bigger and better things or you can resist "what is" and you suffer. Attachment to something or someone is okay as long as you know that everything always changes and when and if things change you don’t remain attached to this person or thing that no longer is. If and when you do this; you set yourself up for grief and pain. Of course there is a process that you must go through to let go of people and things when you lose them but if you fixate on not having what you want, not being with who you want, or not getting what you want; how in the heck to you think that is going to make you feel? Look, the fact that sometimes life doesn’t work out the way we want is nothing new but if you don’t begin to accept that adversity will knock at your door, you won’t be prepared for the visit. And when it does show up there isn’t one thing you can do about it except this: you can choose to deal with it or you can keep closing the door on it. But, get very clear on one thing. If you close the door on it and don’t accept it, it won’t go away. It will continue to knock until you can’t take it anymore and you won’t have any choice but to deal with it. So in my opinion, you might as well deal with it now because it isn’t going anywhere until you do. Accepting what happens to you in life isn’t always easy, but what is so easy about not accepting things? As a matter of fact, it’s a lot easier on yourself to learn how to accept things than it is to deal with the havoc the resistance wreaks in your life. You need to give yourself a good talking to. You need to let yourself know that even though things didn’t work out the way you wanted doesn’t mean they won’t down the road with someone or something else in your life. When you learn the Art of Acceptance you will be prepared to deal with life with grace and you can invite adversity in the next time it knocks at your door, because the sooner you let it in, the sooner it is going to leave. But by resisting it, you will only prolong the inevitable. About the Author: . Susan’s work has inspired people from all over the world to take back their power!
