Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be to be accepted. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn’t require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are.
I have never found anybody who could stand to accept the daily demonstrative love I feel in me, and give back as good as I give.
I had embraced you…
long before i hugged you.
Truth was never meant to make you comfortable, unless you stand in the middle of it with acceptance.
It seems impossible to wheedle his way out of his impending death. No one has before him. But just as a young person feels invincible, he cannot bring himself to accept the looming train as he stands upon the tracks feeling the deep rumbling of the behemoth barreling straight toward him.
To love, and be loved, this is the greatest challenge that any of us face in our lives.
No matter how much you stress or obsess about the past or future, you can’t change either one. In the present is where your power lies.
Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward.
People often tell themselves lies, in order to reach what they consider acceptance in difficult situations. In reality, they fool themselves into believing they are healed, until that lie is corrected by time, further information or their own personal growth. True healing comes when we learn to not avoid truth, but face it. Only then will we be set free.
Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you’ve lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that’s good.
