Sandbox Writing Challenge #67 — Can acceptance REALLY change relationships?

How would accepting yourself for who you are change your relationship with YOU?
And thinking back to the person (or persons) you thought you could change, would accepting THEM for who they are change your relationship with them? How?

Accepting myself for who I am really change my relationship with myself. I forgive myself for the things I cannot and haven’t done, for all the inconsistencies and imperfection, for my quirks and idiosyncracies. I am kinder to myself, not so strict and not give myself impossible targets or aims. I am more tolerant with myself and the others.

Me, myself, I
Passion through poetry and fiction
Glad I could do what I’ve chosen
Passion in doing everything fully
To swim and snorkel in the sea
Passion in learning new things
Life is full of swings and zings
Passion in teaching English
Don’t worry, I’m also British
Passion in meeting friends
Being me, don’t do pretends
Passion in shopping till I drop
I like my top, don’t do swap
Passion in ringing my Mom
Like giving myself a balm
Passion in skyping the son
Telling his pun, it’s quite fun
Passion with cycling with Him
Sometimes going to the gym
Passion in seeing the world
Kaleidoscope as it whirled
Passion in experiencing life
I think I’m a good housewife
Passion with different culture
Eyes not covered with a blinker
I think I’m living my passion
I always feel that I have won
I’m grateful to this brilliant world
Such dazzling and wonderful world

Shake the ache I feel
Lengthen the strength of my soul
Pain still stains spirit
Not fault to put salt on wound
Not too much to touch my heart

Now I have my strength
Things are springing brightly
Not blame anyone
Things happened for a reason
Acceptance is a great balm

so let them fall, tears can come and go, so
let them be and some things we cannot let
we fall in love and then get hurt as we
learn some lessons and we just have to learn

keep on living as memories we keep
acquire some skills, doesn’t hurt to acquire
sun rises and sets, every day the sun
life goes on and it’s so wonderful, life

flowers blooming, appreciate them, flowers
rainbow after the rain, see the rainbow
dance by the light of the moonlight, let’s dance
together we see the world, together

let them fall, tears can come and go, so let
life goes on and it’s so wonderful, life

  1. What a beYOUtiful post! I was especially struck by the not giving yourself impossible targets or aims. I need to learn to not do that. I think early on in church I was taught to hold myself to such an impossible standard. Sure screwed me up… I’m ten times harder on myself than I am anyone else…
