Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Advice from a friend (Lucy McBride).
In other words, mitigating despair requires:
Facing the fixed harsh realities of life (i.e. death, loss, grief, aging)
Coping with these realities as able (i.e. giving yourself permission to grieve; managing complex feelings with support as needed; prioritizing sleep, exercise, and good care of your body and mind.)
Directing our energy to the areas where we do have some control (i.e. relationships, hobbies, volunteer work, creating and enjoying beauty, leaning into joy.)
