Things I Learned To Accept

Things I've Learned To Accept.jpg

I saw this hashtag trending on Twitter a couple of weeks ago which has given me the inspiration for this blog post. Rather than limiting my thoughts to a character limit on Twitter, I thought that it would it be a good idea to reflect on the things that I’ve learned to accept during my 21 years. There’s so much that I’ve learned to accept over the years that I want to share with you all, so let’s get into the blog post!

Being single is perfectly okay

I feel as though there’s always some form of pressure from people to be in a relationship and to find that one person that you’ll spend the rest of your life with. But what about those people who want to be single or prefer it? I’ve learned to accept that being single is perfectly okay and I’m actually very happy being single. At this stage in my life, I don’t feel the need to be in a relationship.

Things don’t always turn out the way you expect

Life has a funny way of teaching us lessons and takes us in directions that we don’t expect. Sometimes these directions can feel positive, other times the polar opposite and we wonder why life is taking us in that direction. Sometimes we can feel a little lost in life sometimes and have no idea what direction life is going to take us.

Life isn’t fair

This one links to the last point in a way. Situations don’t always turn out the way that you want or expect them, that could end up being good or bad. Life isn’t always fair and you can end up in rubbish situations through no fault of your own.

You can’t change people

Whether it be family, friends, partners or whoever it may be, no matter how hard you try you just can’t change people. You can’t force people to change their ways or see things in a different light. That’s just the way it is, as unfortunate as that may be.

It’s okay not to be okay

This is something that I’ve written a blog post on in the post (you can that post here if you like), but I wanted to include the phrase here too because it’s something that I’ve definitely started to accept. Everyone has bad days and that’s perfectly okay. It’s impossible to be happy 24/7 and it can be exhausting to put on a happy mask on your rubbish days. It’s okay not to be okay.

  1. Hey Ash @varietytales here from twitter, great post! I agree with your point “You can’t change people”. I too believe people will only change only if they want to. This blog is so important and it really made me think. Keep up the good work!

  2. So true, especially the single one. After my divorce, people kept asking things like if I was dating or had met someone. They even suggested that maybe I should try dating apps. Like, hello, maybe I just need some alone time?
    Great post 🙂

  3. I always love these types of posts, I swear they’re an eye-opener. Sometimes you’ve just got to accept things and you’ll be happier with yourself. I completely agree with you, especially things that don’t always turn out the way you expect. Sometimes you just want things to go well, but unfortunately, they don’t.
