It’s interesting to be a teacher of forgiveness, being ultra aware that acceptance is the first step in the process. You can’t make changes when you don’t face the truth of a situation. The reality of the truth comes first. 

Yet, I can literally observe myself resisting my own truth, my own reality. I see myself creating a “story” about the situation. My feelings get hurt. When I resist it, I sink into frustration, I want something “other” than what is and that leads to unhappy feelings. So today, I will accept all that comes and not resist.
