Living in resistance keeps us stuck. Whatever you’re resisting, you’re at war with. Acceptance gives you permission to heal. It doesn’t mean what happened was okay. But it gives you the opportunity to validate your feelings about the memory with the intention to heal - not to remain stuck in victimhood.
Victimhood holds us in the dark and nothing gets accomplished there – unless we’re choosing to move toward the light. Acceptance helps us turn that light on. And slowly, we can start moving towards it through inner work.
