I’ve been thinking about acceptance. How, in difficult situations, my tendency is to fight the difficulty, to reject it. Like I’m saying to the experience, “this is not okay”.
But sometimes things are difficult. Why reject an inevitable part of life?
This isn’t the same thing as passivity, of sitting back and being punished. The attitude of, “things suck, so why try?”
Rejecting a part of life is like rejecting a part of yourself. This life, it’s full-spectrum.
It’s okay when things are difficult. It’s okay to be lost, to not know the next steps.
It’s okay to live in your heart. Feel it all. Let in the light with the dark. Let in the sun with the storm.
That’s where the love is.
