It said that immortality comes with a price.
Unfortunately, that price is more than just a nose which is why insanity is a common theme when dealing with immortal beings. The years of years of traumatic experiences can pile on top of each other becoming a weight too much to bare PTSD to the max. Even if your experiences are not too traumatic you would still have to watch your loved ones die over and over again.
So that brings me to the question if you were immortal could you stay sane and if so how?

I think it all comes down to someone's will and what their goals are if they had immortality.
I think if somehow an immortal being choose to abandon everyone and everything and just leave it all behind since they already know and is aware the fact that the inevitable would have happened either way, then they won't have to suffer by watching others suffer over and over again.
If it was possible why not just skip ahead really far into the distant future? Everyone's long gone and not longer exist by then and thus they would Never had been there the whole time to watch and see their loved ones suffer and die in the first place.
Would it not have been better to just NEVER been present there at all to watch and see their loved ones suffer and then eventually die anyway?
If I was immortal wouldn't waste time and effort in trying to change or better a world such as ours for example, in which I know and believe can absolutely never be fixed or change for the better, and I find no point of saving or harming anyone or anything since the end results are all the same: They would always eventually die no matter what, all attempts to change and make it better are entirely futile attempts, but I do give credit and respect for those that continue to try and try and try. But I just don't expect it ever really get better when I looked into our Planet's and Humanity's history altogether, I find the negative to greatly outweigh any of the positive.
And that the best anyone could really do is just postpone and delay the inevitable.
Also it is because I absolute know that I can not control the world, I can never control the world, and NEITHER would I ever have any desire to control the world as how it would turn out and because I know I will never ever have control over other people. So I'd forget about trying to change or save the world, because I just absolutely don't believe it can be saved. Again, all attempts I believed would be eventually futile.
Ideally like I said, if I was immortal I would want to skip ahead far far far into the very very distant future through space Faster-Than-Light travel or some sort of time displacement. Or if not possible, I'd find a way to leave to go to a new world in a far away planet or alternate reality or dimension and have a complete fresh start. But that would be my clear goal.
And depending on what kind or type of immortality you're referring to specifically? Any specific requirements to maintain the immortality?1
