There was a time when I did not accept situations as they are. I was not into acceptance. Reality had to change. A healthy way to do this, in my case, was to go for a good run. When I finished, I felt better. The outside situation was the same but it did not bother me so much. I had changed me in a healthy way. This is sanity. Somethings we simply cannot change the outsides. But I had an unhealthy, insane way of changing reality. I would have a drink of alcohol. Well, maybe a few more drinks. Reality changed for me. The outside world did not bother me. Actually, nothing bothered me at some point in this solution. The insanity is that I had only changed myself for the worse, with my alcohol consumption, while the outside world stayed the same. I thought that I was fine. The next day, the outsides and insides were not so good. So you have to ask yourself, if you are having trouble with acceptance of things you cannot change, what will be your response? I now like to do something good for myself, or maybe even do something good for someone else. Now there is a thought! I find a piece of chocolate, and even shared, is very healthy sometimes. I don't seem to have too many good runs in me anymore. But even a bad run beats a headache.
