  1. Acceptance is knowing all roads lead this to this Rome, you are in right now.
  2. You need to stop fighting it to let it begin. You don’t have to be a sponge wrapped in plastic and wishing water would just soak in.
  3. You need to look at your situation as if you are watching a movie. Detach from yourself.
  4. You may be hot, sexy, charming, intelligent or any combination of that, but you are not God. Stop trying to be one.
  5. We don’t live in a world of time machines and as if it would have helped. You don’t change the past, it changes you. Let that sink in and get the hell out of would-have-been and if-then.
  6. Everybody is the black sheep in the herd. They just try to paint themselves white.
  7. Most people around us are noise. You will learn to filter and find the good channels. Give it time and EXPERIENCE!
  8. Everybody is fighting their own uphill battle like you. Accept them for what they are.
  9. Everybody is running their own race. You are not penalised for not accepting things fast. Give yourself time.
  10. Don’t lose control of the narrative of your life, accept everything at your own pace and be happy.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
