Soldieroffortune .. you know your OP is really just Christian, right?  The Serenity Prayer ...

Of course if you want to derive that from quantum mechanics, give it a shot ;-)

Thich Nhat Hanh has a good darma lecture on "interbeing" that isn't stoic or Christian.  Basically, he says you need to embrace your suffering, to befriend it.  Avoiding it is as impossible as avoiding yourself.  Only then can you have compassion for yourself, and thru that, compassion for others.
