Acceptance-based psychotherapy teaches how to deal with the pain in our lives. We gain greater control over our emotions, our actions, our interactions, and our goals in life.
Mindful self-awareness increases. Self-acceptance increases. Self-blame decreases. We become more in touch with our thoughts, feelings, sensations, and how we choose to handle life.
You are more likely to move from the passenger seat to the driver’s seat of your life. You take control rather than be controlled by life, people, places, and things. You recognize that you have choices – and you run the show! That’s freedom!
