As I mentioned in another post, what helps me live in the world that surrounds us is a simple, yet well-known prayer. I find peace in it; perhaps someone else will as well:"God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference. Thy Will, not mine, be done." This requires me to do what I can without discarding my Serenity; to be serene while trying to do what I can, and to have the courage to face the onslaught of others. Most of all, I must remember that His will, ultimately, shall be done. I may not like it, but accept it.
