We admitted we were powerless …
(The first step of the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous). Admission and acceptance seem to mean one and the same thing.
Acceptance means that you can find the serenity within to let go of the past with its mistakes and regrets, and move into the future with a new perspective, appreciating the opportunity to take a second chance.
Acceptance means you’ll find security again when difficult times come into your life, and comfort to relieve any pain. You’ll find new dreams, fresh hopes, and forgiveness of the heart.
Acceptance does not mean that you will always be perfect. It simply means that you’ll always overcome imperfection.
Acceptance is the road to peace – letting go of the worst, holding on to the best, and finding the hope inside that continues throughout life.
Acceptance is the heart’s best defense, love’s greatest asset, and the easiest way
to keep on believing in yourself and others.
