Commonly used in the military, the slang term “Embrace the Suck” is another way of saying that the situation is bad, but deal with it. It is the act of consciously accepting or appreciating something this is extremely unpleasant but unavoidable. By accepting the situation an individual can move past the complaining and self pity and begin dealing with the reality of the situation.
Extreme situations impact people emotionally and psychologically, but people are more resilient than they know. Coming to terms with a bad situation quickly, can be the difference between life and death. Avoid panic, embrace the suck and do what needs to be done.
