You may not yet have all of the details, but you know and understand how it will affect your life.
The wind is blowing in one direction, but you want to sail in the opposite direction. You can't make the wind change directions; you can't battle against nature and expect it to conform to your will. You need to be the one who is flexible and clever about how you negotiate the oceans of life. Don't try to shift the wind; instead, shift your sails, take advantage of wind by zig zagging or tacking in the direction that you really want to go. Your progress might be slow, but it's still progress.
Don't dwell on your previous failures. Look at them as opportunities to improve.
