Let Us Accept It

Let Us Accept It

What will be will be.

“Let us accept it, as we accept what the doctor prescribes. It may not always be pleasant, but we embrace it —because we want to get well.”

Marcus Aurelius said that a long time ago.

It's hard to accept.

But we do.

My patients do.

It's hard to accept that which we don't want.

Like a diagnosis.

Like chemo.

Like divorce.

Like anything that sucks.

And a lot sucks.

But there's acceptance.

To make it suck less.
