The first line of the prayer is to live in peace with everything that is out of our hands to change, like the past, other people, our bodies. Make a list of everything that is not within your power to change.
The second line is for the courage to change the things we can, and there is often very little we can change, other than what goes on in our mind. But make a list of all things that are in your power to change.
The last line of the prayer is the most important, the wisdom to know the difference. If you look at your list of everything that you can't change, and they are still the things you want changing, this will lead towards a mental breakdown of some kind.
The prayer is about learning to live in peace with yourself. Allah created you as a wonderful person, we have to accept that Allah created us this way for a purpose and give thanks.
May Allah bless you on your journey.
