Show Notes

Acceptance and agreement are two very different things. Allen and Thom clarify that we are faced with the challenge of acceptance when the only other choice is to remain stuck in distress and a delusional belief that we can control (or should be able to control) far more than we actually do. Both hosts offer examples from their own lives of arriving at impasses that led to acceptance and profound change when they remembered to focus their problem-solving efforts on themselves (taking care of their side of the street) in the here and now.

The topic of acceptance will continue in next week's episode!
