If you are alive, you deal with disappointment. If you’re like me, you want to find a deeper meaning behind the disappointment. We negotiate with it, we curse it, we try to still get everything we want anyway. It takes a long time to accept sometimes.
To reach that space of calm and acceptance faster, we need to be there for ourselves at the moment that our heart skips a beat and we are panicked about the sudden shift in status. We must comfort ourselves and trust ourselves that we will be OK no matter what happened.
We have the option to mourn what is no longer available, or fight for what we want and achieve it in a different way, or adjust our expectations around what’s happening already anyway.
Acceptance is being with the space that remains where something or someone or an idea existed, and allowing that to be there even as we decide what we will do next. It might involve us changing that space’s purpose, or leaving it there, or adding something to it that wasn’t there before.
These adjustments are how we grow and continue to live and even thrive throughout our lives. And it doesn’t have to be fun, and often isn’t. It just happens.
