In last week’s Sandbox Writing Challenge we tackled the question, “What have you struggled to change in your own life?” Now that you have one or two or twenty of those things firmly in your mind, take a minute and feel as frustrated and discouraged about them as you can… (No, seriously!)

Are you feeling bummed out yet? Do you feel like you just can’t accept yourself the way you are without fixing all that “stuff?” Well that leads us to our next prompt for this week…

aaeaaqaaaaaaaawbaaaajdu2ywjjowe5lwqwmzgtndfmyi1hyje2lwu0ymvjnzq3mtlhzqWhat does acceptance feel like? How does it differ from resignation or passivity?

Here’s a little help from vocabulary.com:

passivity: Passivity is allowing others to do things to you without complaining or pushing back.
resignation: Resignation can mean either stepping down from a job or accepting an unpleasant but inevitable situation.

So how do you think acceptance differs from these two attitudes?

As always, remember to include the link to this post on YOUR blog post. Or if your response isn’t overly long, feel free to leave it in the comment section below. And please feel free to interpret the prompt however you wish: memoirs, poems, pictures, etc.

I look forward to hearing what you have to say about this!
