Radical acceptance is about acknowledging reality—not liking or contesting it. Once you acknowledge what is really happening, you can change it or start to heal. Radical acceptance has nothing to do with being passive or giving up. To the contrary, it is about channeling your energy into moving on. It simply means that you are acknowledging reality, what happened or is currently happening. Fighting reality only intensifies your emotional reaction. You might fight reality by judging a situation or saying “It should or shouldn’t be this way,” “That’s not fair!” or “Why me?!” Fighting reality only creates suffering. While pain is inevitable in life, suffering is optional.
All suffering has its roots in resistance to what is. When you find your way to a state of radical acceptance, you can see everything through a fresh, new lens. Discover a willingness to be open to what is going on in your life with people, situations, or circumstances.
Become informed about how to practice radical acceptance and let go of emotional roadblocks.
Acceptance does not mean throwing your hands up in the air or waving a white flag. To the contrary, once you accept reality, you can consider how to change it. You can say: “Okay, this exists. This is happening or happened. How do I want to handle it?” In other words, practicing acceptance actually leads the way to problem solving.
Reframe your thinking and create a radical acceptance practice that allows for a profound shift of consciousness where life is no longer seen as a set of obstacles but rather as teachers, opportunities, and possibilities.
