acceptance. acceptance is a funny thing. we all crave it. we all want it from someone from time to time. sometimes we get it from things without even realizing it. but they can take it away in the blink of an eye, too. take nature for example. the earth accepts you walking on its surface. it even provides food, water, and pretty things to see and explore. until a sinkhole opens up beneath your feet and it swallows you whole. yea. think about it.
