Step away from it, when it is ticking in our head like an unexploded bomb that is about to go off, just walk away, physically and/or mentally. When the steam is rising and coming out of our ears, it is not going to get any better by staying involved.
When something has got to us, go and have a tea, a walk around the block, put on some music, find a funny video on YouTube, go and hug someone and let go.
Let go the instant that you feel you are becoming the reaction to the situation that is arising.
Just say ‘WTF’ inside or out loud and move on.
We are conditioned to be always trying to make things happen, engineer outcomes, set goals, hustle and so on.
Perhaps there is an alternative, just accept what is and go with the flow of life, do not resist things and be at peace within free from the fight.
Life will unfold and flow with magic when we let go of trying to make things happen.
The negative energy of all that effort to make things happen that we can not control. We are unable to stop the waves in the sea, but we can ride over them.
The flow of life is there for us all, get on and go for the ride, see where it takes us.
