Could anyone please explain the parts in bold? Would it be grammatically correct if I write "accept" instead of "accepting" here?


▪Meanwhile back in reality, most will drain your bank account, stress you into an early grave, and create unnecessary problems in your life while never accepting personal responsibility for their own toxicity.

Back in reality usually refers to going back to your "normal" life. Like if you go on holiday, have a great, then go back to work you could say something like "back to reality".

Stress you into an early grave means that something will give you so much stress it will kill you.

I don't believe you can write "accept" here.

Back in reality usually refers to go back to our routine or we go back to our reality or back to work.

Stress you into an early grave means that the stress of something is going to send you to an early grave.
