Throughout our lifetimes we will be faced with many challenging situations that will test our belief systems, our own moral compass and our ability to carry on.
There have been situations in my life where I've chosen to accept the seemingly unacceptable and have stepped back from that which is not serving my Highest Good or anyone else's.
Have I given up or given in?
No. My innate stubbornness makes that impossible.
I've simply made peace with the situation and chosen to put my efforts into situations where I can be of some good.
But how do we know if we're coming from a place of acceptance or apathy?
When I'm operating from a place of acceptance I feel a sense of peace. I'm not angry, frustrated or depressed about a situation. There is a serenity that helps me do what needs to be done without much anxiety or strife.
When I'm operating out of apathy I feel paralyzed by certain events. Doom and gloom are the order of the day. The apathy times are quite unpleasant.
So, in all situations I will strive for acceptance when nothing else can be done. Will that make life easy?
But it will make it easier.
