Inner Growth Word of the Day: Unacceptable
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) not acceptable: not pleasing or welcome.
Unacceptable in a sentence: When you believe something is not right, you typically deem it unacceptable.
Unacceptable in action: A thing or situation that one finds contrary to their own “list” of what should or shouldn’t be allowed, that is unacceptable.
Unacceptable and inner growth: Exploring the things you find unacceptable allows you to pursue inner growth as you ask yourself why those things are such and as you look at the transformation that has happened with things that you considered unacceptable at one time in your life, but then changed to acceptable.
Unacceptable and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What do I consider unacceptable? Are there things that are unacceptable to me forever? Why makes something or someone unacceptable to me? How have I learned from unacceptable situations? What takeaways has the unacceptable brought me? How has something unacceptable affected my life? Why has something unacceptable become acceptable later on? What changes need to happen to go from unacceptable to acceptable in my book?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with unacceptable at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. Now think of three things you used to deem unacceptable that are now acceptable to you and write about one of them using the words from your list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about the unacceptable to you and notice where your emotions start out, how they flow throughout your body or if they stay in certain areas. As you explore these feelings accompany them (when you’re ready) with a different feeling, release the stagnating emotions by visualizing a running stream of water and as you release them notice what it’s like to let go.
