"Real acceptance is about accepting what you cannot change. If you keep resisting the things you cannot change, you will suffer. When you accept it, you let it go and receive peace...
We can change some things in life. Some we cannot. People will live their lives and make choices for themselves. Some of those choices you may agree with and some you may not. The thing to remember is, it is their life. Just as your life is yours. The only thing you can change are your own choices. Focus on your life and your choices and the sting of someone else's choices will not matter so much."
