To change anything, we best start with accepting it ... agree ?

"We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." Carl Jung What do you think ?

After some thought, I think there is a serious point here. Condemnation does not lead to solutions. Condemnation simply puts the event in the pale of the "off limits". Change has to do with understanding a situation. True understanding can only start after we accept a situation. We are not accepting the situation's limits or consequences. We are accepting the reality and starting from there.

We are definitely not starting with indifference. We do accept the REALITY of a situation. We are not accepting the situation as good. Understanding as in knowing why someone probably acted as sh/e did, definitely. Understanding as in saying that every behavior is OK, no.
