In Case of Emergency
Here are a few grounding thoughts to calm the Ego down...
This Shall Too Pass: Before working ourselves all up about something, remember that this moment, as difficult and scary it is, 'Shall Too Pass'. One of the inevitable things in life is change. So no matter how difficult your situation is, one thing is for sure; it will change. Another version of this is by Matyas Gaspar; How Important will this be in ... 5 minutes, 5 hours, 5 days, 5 months, 5 years, etc.
None of This is About Me: As much as we would like to believe, none of this is about me. For starters, we all think that all of this is all about us, so just by pure logic, we are all wrong. If you think about all the humans, all the animals and plants that have come before you, all the galactic processes that had to occur for even the chemical elements to be present in your body... we realize that we are one of the extremely rare ones that have the fortune to witness this galactic moment.
A New Day: Many of the wonderful surprises in life, sudden and random turns of events we couldn't have anticipated. We never know what a new day might bring. In addition, many of the wonderful surprises in the future might've already begun developing.
There Are Positive People Out There: Very few things bring us down like meeting a negative person. Sometimes we don't even realize that we are in the presence of these so called energy vampires, just realize suddenly that we are drained of energy and inspiration. On the other hand, being in the presence of somebody fresh and positive really energizes our batteries. Avoid the energy suckers and hang out with people who charge you up.Another version of this is by Matyas Gaspar;
