Acceptance you can't control all the things around you. Dolphin can't swim in land, neither eagle can't fly under the ocean. But they see the same beauty of nature. Let it be.

Take it step by step, don't force things to happen, if you know you shouldn't be, do it gradually. You can't eat a whole burger in a single bite, once you do, you'll have trouble digesting it.

Express your feelings, don't surpress it. Free yourself from this burden emotions
