Tips for accepting the reality of what's happening around us.
Nashville, Ark. - Turn on the nightly news, read the newspaper, experience life. Sometimes
bad things happen that we have no control over. We can’t change people’s behaviors
or the reality of what is happening. Sometimes these experiences can be painful. Radical
acceptance is a coping skill that helps us evaluate situations and work to reduce
unhealthy behavior and feelings, such as resentment, anger, hatred, or shame.
Radical acceptance does not mean you approve of the situation, are giving
up, or that it isn’t painful. You should still feel. By accepting that it is what
it is, you give the problem less power over you and you can begin to move forward.
Accepting reality is a process. Here are some tips that may help:
Does it work? According to Mental Health America, a nonprofit organization that
works to promote overall mental health, it does work. There have also been numerous
studies that show the power of positive thinking. For more resources on coping, stress,
or the power of positive thinking, contact the Howard County Cooperative Extension
Service which is part of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
