We don't have to like what's happening in the world to make good use of it, we just need to accept it. We don’t have to like the way things are going, but we need to be able to deal with the circumstances. Think about what should be and what should not, to help formulate goals. Learn to operate in the world that is, as it is. We have the power to change things, but to do so, we have to start with the way things actually are... then we can work effectively to shape reality the way we choose.
