I am going to make up a simple sentence.

(ex) I believe in the reality I see.

To help you see this in context, I am going to talk about unemployment in my city. The unemployment rate in my city is very high right now. If I quit my job, I don't think I can find another one very easily. Even though I don't like my job, I have to keep it. So, I believe what I see in the state of reality.

Does my example make any sense? Thanks for your help.

    It might make sense if the context (the preceding and the following sentences) made it clear that you're talking about job opportunities. As a stand-alone sentence, it might be taken as your philosophical position on the nature of reality, which would be contrary to, for example, solipsism. :D

    It makes sense in the context you've given for it, but it's not very idiomatic.

    As an explanation of why you feel you're stuck with a job you don't really like, I think I'd say something like:
    "I accept the reality of the situation".
