Acceptance

All of us at sometime have to stop and just look at our lives, our situations and our feelings and face up to a few home truths that are sometimes difficult to accept.

We have to look at ourselves on the inside.   The outside doesn’t matter .. it is superficial .. it is what INSIDE that makes us, our feelings, our thoughts, our acceptance of who we are, good and bad.   It is only when we can do this and truly accept our faults and weaknesses along with our strengths that we really begin to understand ourselves and life.

I have plenty of faults, as we all do.  None of us are perfect or anywhere near it .. but you cannot go through life concentrating on what you are not, what we have to do is look at what we are .. honestly .. and realise that we will never be happy while we pretend to be someone that we are not.

I accept myself, and all my bad points… I know my weaknesses … I know where I fall down but I also know my strengths .. 

I am happy to accept me as I am.   Maybe that is why I have found my peace again.

Expectation and Acceptance

All of us have expectations from life, love and ourselves that we try to accomplish and reach every day of our lives.

From the moment we are born we are in a world where expectations of us, by us and by others effects everything we do, every decision we make and every moment we breathe.

As we meander down our path of life we will often fall short of these expectations, whether we choose to or inadvertently do so.  This is life.

 

 

This is the wonderful crazy world we live in where expectations will lead to disappointment in reality.

As people, the pressure of expectation from others but more importantly from ourselves is the driving force that pushes us ahead in life, keeps us going, keeps us human.

We will never receive all we expect from life or from someone and the balance between expectation and acceptance can be a battle that will never be won.

When we can accept that we will never reach all that is expected of us, professionally or emotionally then the world seems a much friendly place.

Not everyone will accept that their expectation of us is unrealistic, not everyone will accept differences but that is their attitude and one thing that we cannot expect to change, we just have to accept it.

I know that from previous experiences in life that I have often failed peoples expectation of me and more importantly what I have expected from myself. There is little I can about this apart from accept it.    I realised today that throughout all my previous relationships and failures the one common factor in this is me.

I have two choices now .. do I beat myself up about it, or accept it for what it is?

I have decided to accept it.   The past is in the past, I cannot change it and, in a way, I really do not want to.   I have learned lessons that will allow me to continue to evolve as the imperfect person that I am.

I am happy to accept that.
