My blog has been down for a couple of weeks due to circumstances beyond my control. During that time, I have been on an emotional roller coaster. Recovery suggest I accept things I can not change. Normally, that isn’t a problem. The things in my life I have no control over are typically nothing more than annoyances. But for some reason, this issue has upset me beyond description. It has impacted every aspect of my life. In my mind, I have certainly made this problem bigger than it actually is. But emotions are frequently not based in reality. Acceptance is easy to talk about, and sometimes impossible to actually implement. And I’ve been told that accepting something doesn’t mean I have to like it. All of that is true. But how do I accept something that is REALLY pissing me off? I guess I learned that acceptance can’t be clicked on like a light switch. It took two weeks before I started to accept the situation and calm down. And then the problem solved itself. The anger and depression were all for nothing.
