‘Acceptance’ is about accepting the truth of a negative moment, without resistance. It is a foundation for transformation and a path to freedom. Anxiety, pain and illness, unpleasant encounters with people, low self-esteem, conditions such as long Covid-19 – these are issues that can become part of our lives without consuming our whole lives. Unhappiness and resentment can eat away at us when we ruminate and overthink a moment however big or small, but acceptance can give us our lives back even if it cannot give back something we have lost. This isn’t a book about dropping all negativity – it’s about experiencing feelings such as anxiety, regret and anger and relating to them in a way that doesn’t allow them to take over our lives.

In this wise and practical book, psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher Padraig O’Morain explains how practising acceptance can help us find happiness.

It can be difficult to make peace with things that happen to you and affect your situation. Undesired events can knock us for six, leaving us harbouring resentment, anger and frustration. These negative emotions can affect us deeply and be difficult to shift. Acknowledging these feelings and learning how to accept what has happened – even if you do not agree with it – can be life-changing.

In Acceptance you will discover how to stop brooding on what happened in the past and free yourself up to focus on more positive feelings. Using an approach derived from his years of experience, Padraig introduces us to the power of acceptance through a range of themes including accepting uncertainty, acceptance in relationships, climate emotions and acceptance and gratitude. The path towards acceptance is not always straightforward, but ultimately it will help you get unstuck and move on with your life. Find out more in the stories, case studies and practical exercises in this thoughtful book and discover how to lighten the load you have been carrying.

‘I read the book from start to finish and I think it might change my life.’
