I Am Trying To Accept The Things I Cannot Change

But it's not easy! 38,224 People

    I could talk until I'm blue in the face,

    but it won't change a damn thing. I need to accept the woman I was is gone... Embrace the woman I became, and encourage the woman I want to be. http://youtu.be/yJL5SE1i0u4

    All my life I would always walk with my head

    down because I was ashamed of how I looked. My mom is very beautiful however and everywhere we go I would always hear people give her compliments reminding her how beautiful she is. I remember one time when I was in elementary school and my mom came to my school to drop me off...

    There's lots of things I'd like to change,

    but realise that's impossible. I mean how to do change other people, making them more tolerant, open minded, less selfish... can't be done, right? What can be done is detaching detaching from any situation and looking at it as if you're separate from it...like from vantage...

    Whenever I like someone I always have this

    extreme anxiety. I worry too much with what I've said: was that wrong to say that? Why he's not replying me when he's online? he doesn't like me anymore, etc. I know it's impossible to make it come true, sadly when I like someone it'll hard to move back. I respect his reasons...

    Husband 73 diagnosis stage 4 lung cancer.

    I m living in an environment

    where I know and realise I can't wish what I think is the best solution. A relationship that makes no meaning end of the day . I m just a part required to fulfill the limitations of life but not entirely in control.

    One of the patients I looked

    after today died. He was four years old, blonde hair young lad, only child to a middle aged German couple. Finished work and stills feel heavy inside. As I write this I can't help the tears welling in my eyes. I think this needs to come out. Hope everyone has a better day.

    i used to be married to my best friend.

    (or so i thought). I'm trying to accept that even though I'll always love him, he and i have differences we cannot get past and that his anger wipes away any good that he does. so we just have to co-parent as best we can for the rest of our lives.

    I want to let go of him. I want to get over how much he hurt me. I want to stop feeling heartbroken. I want to let go. I don't know how to let go. If I simply choose to let go, won't I just keep see sawing back and forth between letting go and holding on? I just want to let go...

    I'm still working on the marriage issue.

    It's not going so well. Today my husband told me that he basically has been using his mom and everything else has an excuse for his behavior and said the real reason is that "he's never loved me as a wife". I don't even know how to respond to that or what to think. I've given...

    which was not my choice. She said she can not give me the love and attention I deserve. She has been so nice about the break up. I'm not coping I feel like my heart is breaking. I'm currently still having to live in the same house. Im struggling to accept it.

    When my wonderful girl left me

    after almost 12 years, I was so hurt and shocked. Especially when I found out who she'd left me for. I had cancer when she left me. And I must admit that I had given up. When I left, I took our son with me. Not to hurt her, not for revenge, but because she had the girls, the...
