“When we stop and reflect about our daily actions and be aware that the pros, for us as a person (the self), outweigh the cons to others, we will stop inflicting traumas on others, and consequently preventing mental health.” —Helen Dantas

We tend to have difficulty healing from previous experiences, especially those deliberately caused by others. The events get “stuck” in our memory. It becomes part of who we are. Most of the time, we think that it is impossible to come to peace and heal from them. We blame ourselves; we blame others, and we develop coping strategies as a way to numb the pain—using alcohol and drugs, binging, gambling, spending sprees. When we do that, we feel better at the moment, but in the long run, it can harm us. By developing the power of acceptance, we learn to better deal with our emotions in the face of past events.

We fail to force ourselves on past events, to blame ourselves and others, to transfer responsibility for what had happened. The power of acceptance is when you better deal with your emotions in the face of past events.


Let the audience understand that events are not determinants of their unhappiness. the search for acceptance of events does not mean approval that they know how to find strength, clarity and purpose to be motivated to follow in their footsteps in search of their happiness.

The purpose of this presentation is to inspire others to develop emotional intelligence through acceptance, taking them to reframing events and consequently overcome conflicts.

  • people who feel guilty about the event

  • people who seek ways to relieve / anesthetize pain such as using alcohol and drugs, binging, gambling, spending sprees.
