This is the truth. I have lived this and learned it the hard way. Although I would reorder the words to say what you face and accept. Often acceptance cannot come until the facing has begun. Sometimes I think we even pass off ignoring and denying as acceptance to ourselves and others. I will tell you this, your heart knows the difference and it isn’t going to let you be until you get there. It is never as hard as you think either, so go for it. Do the work to live your best life, you deserve it.
