Accept Love

Posted on

I used to believe that love was a feeling or an emotion. Something you possessed and could control. Something that made you feel happy, safe, and loved. But I was wrong. Love is something that flows from the heart, from the core of our being. It’s not something we can control or manufacture. We have to accept it when it comes to ourselves and others, for love is the most powerful force in the world.

What isAcceptance?

Acceptance is a word that is thrown around a lot, but what does it really mean? And more importantly, how do we go about accepting love into our lives? Here are six tips for increasing your acceptance of love.

1. Stop trying to control or change the person you’re in love with. This will only lead to frustration and eventually anger. Instead, accept them for exactly who they are.

2. Don’t compare yourself to the person you’re in love with. You are two completely different people and should accept that.

3. Refuse to let your love be taken away from you by any outside forces. Love should never be determined by others, it should be based on mutual respect and understanding.

4. Let go of any grudges or resentment that you may have towards the person you’re in love with. These feelings will only hurt both of you in the long run.

5. Be open minded and accepting of new possibilities with regards to your relationship with love. No two relationships are ever exactly the same, so don’t get stuck in a rut thinking everything has to stay the same.

6. Spend time alone everyday, reflecting on what has madeyou happy in the past and what you would like to bring into your future relationship with love. This will help you to open yourself up to new possibilities and accept love into your life without hesitation.

How to Accept Love

Accepting love is one of the most difficult things to do. We feel scared, guilty, and like we don’t deserve it. But in order to feel truly loved and accepted, we have to learn how to let go of our fears. Here are three ways to start accepting love:
1. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. When you’re comfortable with being open and vulnerable, you’ll be able to let love in. Start by telling your loved one that you’re feeling scared about accepting their love. This will help them understand where your head is at and make it easier for them to talk to you about their feelings.
2. Say “I Love You” often. Saying I Love You shows that you’re committed to the relationship and that you’re willing to accept all of the good and bad that comes with it. Saying I Love You will also make your loved one feel appreciated, which is a big step in accepting love.
3. Let go of your expectations. In order to accept love, we need to let go of our expectations for how the relationship should be. If we can do this, we’ll be able to appreciate the relationship for what it is – a chance for two people to connect.

Benefits of Accepting Love

Benefits of accepting love can be summarised as follows:

1. Improved relationships with others.
2. Increased feelings of well-being and happiness.
3. Greater ease in communicating with others.
4. Lessened fear and anxiety levels.
5. More productive work and home lives.

Practicing Acceptance

Accepting love is one of the most important steps in learning to love yourself. When you accept love, you are able to let go of your grudges and resentments. You can also forgive others for their past mistakes and move on. The key to accepting love is to be honest with yourself and to do your best to be loving towards others.


In this difficult time, it can be really tough to accept love and kindness from others. We might feel like we deserve something better, or that people just want us for our resources or beauty rather than our hearts. But the truth is, most people just want to help us in any way they can. If you put your trust in them and open yourself up to their love, you will find that it is the greatest healer of all.
