When challenges arise we get very different advice: accept things as they are or strive to change. But how do we know when to do what?
Acceptance does not mean we have to remain passive. Sometimes the very act of acceptance helps us to remove the barriers. We can accept the reality that is now but put the work in to change tomorrow.
If we feel unable to change anything holding on to either acceptance or hope, whatever comes easier can be really helpful. We don’t always have to worry about the other so much if we find peace in either.
