Hi,
Could I say:
You have to accept the truth that she has left you.
Thanks.

    This sentence is grammatically correct.
    I have some concern about the use of the word left, but perhaps the full context requires that the truth is indeed being left.

    Hi, Gordonedi.
    "The truth" is not related to the "left". "She has left you" means that "She has abandoned you" :)
    I am wondering if I can use "the truth".

    I think the truth is a bit overdramatic. Why not say: you have to accept that she has left you?

    You could say you have to accept the fact that she has left you. The fact sounds more idiomatic to me than the truth, in this context.
