The definition of "accept" from a dictionary states:
1. to receive willingly; ready for change;
2. to approve or give admittance;
3. to come to terms with something: to acknowledge a fact or truth and come to terms with it; a situation;
4. to tolerate something without protesting or attempting to change it.
Another way to look at acceptance is that acceptance is the opposite of resistance. It is the ability to give in, not create a barrier. Acceptance is not the act of forgiveness. A person can forgive and not accept, or accept and not forgive. Accepting in many ways the belief that something is the fact and cannot be changed, like certain situations, events or people.
I believe that acceptance is a willful act of opening to your self-truth and move forward in life. Acceptance can be seen as closing a door without resistance or resentment on a situation, event, person or something that cannot be changed and then open a new door and walking through it.
