There are a couple of ways to use “accept” so let’s have a look at those today.

If you accept something that you have been offered, then you agree to take it. For example, “He accepted the job offer and starts on Monday.”

With advice and suggestions: If you accept someone’s advice or suggestion, you decide to do what they suggest. For example, “I hope my boss accepts my proposal.”

With situations and people: If you accept a difficult situation, you recognize that it cannot be changed. For example, “She shouldn’t accept his terrible behavior!” However, we don’t say that we cannot accept a person, when we want to say we dislike a person, we say we “cannot stand” or “cannot bear” them
