ADJUST                 ACCEPT                 ADOPT

    GOOD                                            BETTER                                          BEST

We normally find ourselves under situations where there is a change, which demands an attitude from us. So, under such circumstances what stand do we take is so very important. There are always options left as to what further actions we are to take.

A very thin line exists between these words though they sound rather the same but they are tricky. I am therefore giving the nearest synonyms to them below.

We may ADJUST to the conditions, but we will not fully agree or have something in the background of our mind that things should or would have been different.

We shall ACCEPT but still go ahead with the situation not agreeing on certain aspects.

We will ADOPT with full consent of our mind and devote to the circumstances like how we would adopt a child as our own. 

By Adopting we would be more Satisfied and Happy.

 

 Synonyms of ADJUST

Accommodate, Accustom, Regulate, Modify

 

 Synonyms of ACCEPT

Obtain, Acquire, Welcome

 

 Synonyms of ADOPT

Adapt, Appropriate, Endorse, Embrace

    Amen. Some things in life you have no control over such as death. Even sickness, disease and misfortune can overtake anyone. For me I do my best and Let God do the rest. Superheroes only exist in the comics, TV or movies.

      Thanks Tanvir!
      Yes we most times blindly go on and on, if only to understand certain words and Adopt them accordingly. It shall be of great help and contribute to our Happiness.

    Yes very thin line but it is situational. If you like then it is easy to adopt but if it is not your liking (but unavoidable) but then the adoptions may come gradually.

    This is an interesting way of viewing things, Shiva. I’m taking for granted you’re speaking of things worthy of being adopted. I’ve fought against some things. I can’t and won’t either adjust to or accept them and certainly not adopt them. 🙂 — Suzanne

      Certainly Yes Suzanne Ma’am it is an interesting way. But as you have put it, if anything that is not worthy it is to be shunned.

      This I should say, applies to situations that are bound to change our lives. So the adoption….😃

    Positive and powerful! Adjust and accept is only good in the moment, Adopt is for the long haul, going towards fulfilling our potentials. You brought out the difference so well!

      Thanks, Adopt is for long haul, you said it right.
      Potentials are rather waiting for our attitude and actions. Hitting them at the right time with the adoption tool.😃

    Shiva, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this post. I believe that there is only one option, which is acceptance, as hard as it might be, any other ways are leading us in bitterness and that’s the wrong turn to achieve the right attitude. Yet the key to get on this right path, is only awareness, listening to ourselves what is going on at the moment , therefore being honest with ourselves.

      Cornelia you have shaken the still water and the ripples are forming. I understand what you really want to convey.
      Acceptance and Awareness do not match. Acceptance is what we agree to what has come our way even in one corner of our mind we may not agree to it.
      Awareness is what tells us to exercise our discretion.
      Yes we are to be aware of our awareness. But that needs the mind to be nurtured. It takes its time and devotion to practice.
      Here in the post I am slowly trying to bring the reader into Awareness.
      When the petals start opening then shall one use their Discretion and Adopt.
      I am sure and know that your Awareness has come of your Sincere Devotion and Discretion.
      You are a Blessed one and your Karmic acts speak of your honest being and state.
      Thanks so much.

        Dear Shiva, I love your first line of shaking the still water……I absolutely agree with what you are saying about acceptance and awareness, indeed it takes time and perseverance, yet it is all worth it, because through this learning process I have become a much more humbled person and there fore a happier being therefore it affects others. It’s all a beautiful circle to live within. Thank you for your last line, indeed I feel blessed. Thank you our fruitful conversations.

    Shiva, in your very clever and deep poem, post , you address deep questions to which our response will affect our lives.
    I feel that each decision is right in different situations. Adopt if we can , accept or adjust as need forces. I have learnt though that there are also times when you just have to walk away.
    Thank you for this deeply thoughtful post

      Miriam I really appreciate your devotion to read my writings with full involvement. Thanks for that.
      I understand your thoughtful act on different situations. Yes you do have to walk away at times. That is why I have mentioned it as Adjust for Good, Accept for Better and Adopt for Best. Only thing is we may be doing the Good instead of the Best, that is what it all means.
      I hope the Best for you always Miriam.💞🌷

      They are, but what I mean here is if you can Accept why should one Adjust and if you can Adopt why one should Accept. Choosing of the higher value.
      That is why Good Better Best.
