Choose Acceptance Over Struggle

If you can’t walk away from a situation and you can’t change it, acceptance becomes the only viable option if you want to find any peace. There are things in life that we can’t change and we can’t walk away from. Acceptance gives us the clarity to understand the situation for what it is. Own your outcomes and choose acceptance over struggle.

Nurturing Healthy Relationships

Just as we have financial accounts into which we deposit and withdraw money, we have “emotional bank accounts” with loved ones, friends, and colleagues. We make deposits and withdrawals into these accounts as well. If our balance in these accounts is high, we can make the occasional withdrawal without any harmful consequences. But too few deposits and too many withdrawals can leave us with an overdrawn account. Nurturing healthy relationships includes making frequent deposits into the emotional bank account, especially of those closest to us.
