WHAT DOES ACCEPTANCE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Acceptance

Acceptance in human psychology is a person's assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition without attempting to change it, protest or exit. The concept is close in meaning to 'acquiescence', derived from the Latin 'acquiēscere'. Acceptance is fundamental to the core dogma of most Abrahamic religions: the word "Islam" can be translated as "acceptance", "surrender" or "voluntary submission", and Christianity is based upon the "acceptance" of Jesus of Nazareth as the "Christ" and could be compared to some Eastern religious concepts such as Buddhist mindfulness. Religions and psychological treatments often suggest the path of acceptance when a situation is both disliked and unchangeable, or when change may be possible only at great cost or risk. Acceptance may imply only a lack of outward, behavioral attempts at possible change, but the word is also used more specifically for a felt or hypothesized cognitive or emotional state.

Definition of acceptance in the English dictionary

The first definition of acceptance in the dictionary is the act of accepting or the state of being accepted or acceptable. Other definition of acceptance is favourable reception; approval. Acceptance is also belief or assent.
