From tolerance to acceptance
To endure, sustain, or suffer through something is to tolerate it.
To take or receive what is offered is to accept it.
What do we tolerate? Examining our tolerations gives us choice. Do we clean up the toleration, remove ourselves from it or change the conditions?
Or do we accept it? And if we accept it, is this capitulation? Does this kind of acceptance poison our wellbeing, or free us?
There are no right answers to any of these questions. The questions are worthy of asking.
