Embracing Life – Surviving The Struggle by Learning to Embrace the Experience by Emeka Aniyam
The word “embrace” originates from the Latin term “bracchim” and is referred to as “embracer” in Old French. Embrace means to encircle, surround, enclose. How in much of our lives we embrace certain things we love and places. However, many parts of our lives’ circumstances we do not embrace, such as feelings we do not accept, circumstances we reject entirely. In fact, there are certain situations or conditions our society frowns upon that are utterly unacceptable, such as bullying, racism, terrorism and illegal activities. In some cases, due to high expectations and pressures from our society, some tend to violate their own morals by embracing morals that contradict their own, just because our society says to. Sometimes, in some situations, we also allow some individuals to determine what we should or should not embrace in our lives. Allowing others to have total control over oneself could stem from many areas of life, including how one was brought up and changes made along the way.
