Learn to accept rather than expect, and you’ll have far fewer disappointments.

Acceptance is not submission; it is acknowledgment of the facts of a situation, then deciding what you’re going to do about it.

Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.

The more you hide your feelings, the more they show. The more you deny your feelings, the more they grow.

You don’t need strength to let go of something. What you really need is understanding.

Rejection doesn’t hurt, expectation does. Lying doesn’t destroy, denial does. Forgetfulness doesn’t heal, forgiveness does.

The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment.

I follow four dictates: face it, accept it, deal with it, then let it go.

I don’t know a perfect person. I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.

Live your life for you not for anyone else. Don’t let the fear of being judged, rejected or disliked stop you from being yourself.

If you can’t change the circumstances, change your perspective.

I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.

Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.

Look at what you’ve got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

Being who you are is another way of accepting yourself.

You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.

Fear is inevitable, I have to accept that, but I cannot allow it to paralyze me.

Accept your past without regret, handle your present with confidence, and face your future without fear.

When we can no longer change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
