Accept The Things We Cannot Change

Many people in my life are all fired up regarding the U.S. presidential election results. My Left-Wing friends are in shock, and grieving. My Right-Wing friends are celebratory and gloating. My Canadian friends are just dumbfounded and disbelieving.

Here’s a dose of reality: We conducted a legal and Constitutionally-valid election. Donald Trump won. He will be the 45th President of the United States. There will be a peaceful transfer of power in January. This is reality.

Please accept the results, even if they are not what you had hoped for. Please continue to focus on your sobriety and addiction recovery. And, please, be kind to others, even if you don’t agree with one another’s politics.
