What is the difference between tolerance vs acceptance

With emotional literacy, it’s important to help our patients differentiate tolerance vs acceptance.

So what is the key difference?

At the behaviour level, tolerance and acceptance can look very much the same.

The key difference is in the feeling/emotion behind those behaviours.

One has more frustration and resentment. It’s more tiring. The other one is much more defused and more “at peace” with whatever is IS. It’s much less tiring.
