    Acceptance is the only real source of peace,

    serenity, and tranquility. It is also considered as "surrender," "Joining them," Bowing to the inevitable." If you have an urgent desire to help yourself, it can be acquired. One of my absolute favorite reads in the big book is about acceptance. From page 449 AA big book, 417...

    For Others

    Joyfully Unaccomplished?

    Below is something that I wrote a few months ago and posted on a community forum in which I felt safe, understood and embraced. I wrote it in an attempt to reach out, connect and get some perspective but not one person responded. Not a one. Because I had bore so much of my soul...

    Because I Just Don't Care...

    Yeah I don't have to practice acceptance...I just don't care about what other people do, so it ends up being the same as accepting. Me- "Oh you like to rape little girls?" Random **** head- "Yes it's my favorite pass time." Me- "Aight."
