Things we can and cannot change

There is a wise proverb: "We must accept what we cannot change." The hard thing is to figure out what we can change, how we can change it, and the way we should change it.

The post doesn't really seem to match the point of the proverb. Isn't the point that sometimes we must be content with inaction, rather than always striving after things to change?

I understand why you'd say that. The point I was making was essentially the converse of the proverb, that we have opportunity to change what we do not have to accept. Anyway...
