Think about the things that stress you out and now put them into a category: in your control and of out of your control. Sometimes it can be confusing, but be honest with yourself.
Let’s use an example.
you are in the fast lane, and a car is speeding up in the slow lane. You know in about 20 seconds that car is going to cut you off because they don’t want to stay behind that semi truck in front of them.
Option a) you speed up and the douchbag will still squeeze in to the small space in front of you. Then, You honk and yell as if it makes a difference.
Option b) take the high freaking road. slow down. Let the douchbag in.
You can try to defend yourself, that you aren’t in control of other drivers, which is true. However, the anxiety and stress that comes from a situation like this is preventable. Take the high road.
You are mostly in control of your life. Decisions might be tough, sometimes out of your character or norm, but you have the ability to create an anxiety free life.
