“The world is what you make of it, friend. If it doesn’t fit, you make alterations”

~Linda Hunt in Silverado

I listen too often to people complaining about their circumstances with little or no intent on changing those circumstances.  Yes, you do have the power to change your circumstances.  Start by looking at yourself.  What changes could you make in your own attitudes, perceptions, or proximity to your issues that could make a difference?  Do it!  Only then can you look at external elements. Yes, that job, that partner, that location may be the issue and you must show the character and courage to remove yourself from that negative influence. 

Start with yourself, then externally.  But by all means, don’t just complain without any action to change.  You are not a victim, except of your own self-judgments and self-limitations.
