Learning to accept persistent pain in your life is not easy and it is certainly not about giving in or resigning yourself to pain.
It can be hard to accept you are not the person you once were and that your life is different now. However if you can accept that things have changed, then it’s easier to switch your focus and energy towards living your life.
Acceptance is a skill
Learning acceptance is a skill in itself. The Ten Footsteps programme includes a footsteps dedicated to acceptance where you can hear the experiences of others and learn acceptance skills for yourself.
