Acceptance of our ‘new reality’ allows us to move forward, to create openness, and expand our opportunities. Acceptance of things that we need to change about ourselves gives us the strength and helps us acquire the skills to make that move. Accepting our flaws requires introspection and humility, but allows us to rebuild anew. Our resistance to change or stubbornness can put up roadblocks and delay the healing process.
