Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once said, "The best thing one can do when it's raining is let it rain"
When people hear "acceptance" they might think this means to give in or just having to "deal with it" so they resist causing themselves even more pain and suffering. Acceptance isn't about agreeing with or endorsing what happened. It's allowing you to let go of the thoughts that deprive you of peace and happiness. When we hold tight to our thoughts and our story about "what should have been" we limit ourselves. Learning how to accept what is, is our ticket to freedom and joy.
