So much in this world is just so stupid. Sources of irritation and aggravation surround every one of us. They wind us up. They get us down. They rob us all of our ability to be relaxed and at ease. Or rather, we rob ourselves. Those events are just events. As people are just people. They may, or may not, be able to exercise choice over how they behave, but we can. We have the power to say, 'I am not going to let this get to me.'
