Today is a special day for me, because I am invited to attend one-day workshop on ACT – Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, delivered by Prof. Johanna E. Prawitasari, PhD. I truly favor her!
The fact that people suffer is unavoidable. Just like Scott Peck wrote on his book “The Road Less Traveled”. His first words were: Life is difficult. That’s the fact of life. People suffer in many ways and different forms.
The difference that one can make depends on the flexibility to accept the facts. Acceptance will lead to commitment on doing necessary actions. Acceptance here is not bend toward fatalistic point of view. Acceptance here is focusing on embracing the reality that we are facing. We know that our flaws, weaknesses and stinky side are there. We accept it as part of us and then we let it stay there. We stop avoiding the fact that we are not perfect. Once we are able to do so, we can move on with other things – more important things.
Have a good day!
