Acceptance

“Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they’re alive and human.” ~ Albert Ellis

  • Acceptance is the willingness to embrace feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different from your own.
  • Acceptance is the ability to experience or survive something unpleasant.
  • Acceptance is the willingness to tolerate a difficult or unpleasant situation.
  • We all have the human need and right to be accepted.

How will you show acceptance? What can you do to help others find their wings? Remember you also need to accept yourself for your own unique qualities, I Have a Voice.
