What is acceptance in a relationship?
A relationship that has gone through a series of conflict doesn’t always signal an end. For some people, it is just the beginning of a new chapter in their life. In my case, when I chose to accept my husband despite of all his mistakes and human weaknesses, it marked the beginning of our new love story.
I had chosen to leave the past behind, move to a new place and start over. However, this is not always the case for some people because acceptance could mean something else to them.
For others, acceptance means moving on and resorting to a complete surrender. That includes stepping out of the relationship, leaving the past behind and accepting the fact that it’s over.
There’s nothing wrong with choosing to end a relationship if it’s what your heart and mind dictates. After all, we’re all humans who are capable of processing our emotions and making rational decisions. We know ourselves better than anyone else.
Acceptance is a choice
People have different ways of dealing with relationship conflicts and accepting the situation. Some are brave enough to try again while others find it more convenient to embrace freedom.
There is no right or wrong decision on this matter. It all boils down to the choices that we make. As long as it leads us to a path of peace and happiness, there is nothing wrong with how we choose to face acceptance.
