Acceptance is the Answer to All My Problems

Being tolerant is really tough.

I can’t lie- it’s my natural state to isolate or avoid people I don’t like.  When I’m in a situation that isn’t pleasant, I usually find a way to change it.

Why else do you think I’ve moved so many times these past 11 years?

(In case you didn’t know, it’s a lot- I’ve lived in 7 different states and in seemingly endless apartments.)

Today I am learning to accept things as they are.  I don’t have to like them, but I do need to learn a new way of thinking in order to be content.

My first reaction to an unpleasant person or situation is to run away, but I don’t have to do that anymore.  Today I am free to just be.

It might be uncomfortable, but it’s a relief to know that I don’t have to run away.
