“That’s just the way it is.”
It’s true. Things are the way they are and sometimes the only thing we can do is to accept people and situations. At the same time, if you believe that things won’t ever change or that you don’t ever have control to change your life for the better, you may be on the road to depression. This statement suggests you’re feeling helpless, hopeless and may have given up on life. It’s one thing to accept that your car was stolen. It’s quite another to stay in an abusive situation (whether at home or work) because you don’t believe you can get yourself out of it.
