It’s a funny word. For some people it means calmness and peace. I have felt recently that it is a slightly depressing word.
When I was having counselling we discussed that maybe I would need to accept the situation I was in and that it would help me move forward.
After I lost my little dog I did a lot of googling about dealing with loss and grief. Acceptance is also part of the documented grieving process. I think of it as giving up, moving on, shutting off feelings. I know that this is not how either the counsellor or the people who write about dealing with loss meant it.
I’ve been thinking about writing a blog post for a while. I even started one the other day about social media and how it affects people, but I couldn’t organise my thoughts to read as anything coherent. This is a bit of a theme with me recently. Not being able to focus or finish anything. This frustrates me no end. I hate things being half done. Sometimes this means I just don’t start anything because that’s easier to deal with.
Do I need to accept how things are? Or do I need to change them?
I guess I will have to wait and see.
