Acceptance of the past
Acceptance of the past means realizing that everything that happened did so the only possible way it could have.
This is only done by accepting who you and they were, wanted, and believed was true and important at the time.
It could have been better in a million different ways but it could have been worse, too.
No matter what, it put you here now.
Here and now are the most powerful things you'll ever have in order to change the way you view the past in the future.
Make the most of both of them and your heavy reflective heart will lighten and fill with gratitude one day. Promise.
