I've heard recently another way of looking at this. Unhappiness/anger/etc., is what happens when our thoughts of "should" conflict with the reality of what we're living.

The idea is that we need to accept that the discomfort we feel is a warning flag to us that we're insanely protesting what actually is happening, then we are seeing what we're living and can actually affect change for ourselves. I'm explaining it in a round about way, but it's taking some getting used to.

It's like saying "My stupid body won't do the thing I want it to do. I should be able to do x." when in reality, the thought "I can do x." is accepting of reality.

There are limitations to my ability to accept this across the board, but there's some kind of sense to it that's appealing.
