Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having a good morning. Acceptance is something that has been on my mind lately. I've been in this community for about a week and am growing more comfortable in sharing. I find that I like sharing what is going on with me because someone out there may be able to relate- making both/all parties feel a little less alone in what we are going through. I think the hardest part for me is acceptance. Acceptance of all the hurts, diagnoses, and the new normal that life has become. I have my good days and my bad days, and I think I always will have some bad days- it's just the matter of accepting it and rolling with it until it passes. I have tried to fight it, but came out feeling even worse because I "lost the battle" and still had an episode. Some days I feel okay and at peace with what I am going through, and other days I feel so frustrated to the point it is hard to be still. I truly think once I gain more acceptance of all of the realms of the hurts, diagnoses, and the new normal, then I will gain more control over my life rather than it controlling me.
I feel alone in my thinking sometimes, but does it make sense what I am saying? Have you ever felt like you struggle with acceptance?
As always, thank you for listening and I hope you all have a positive day
