A friend is all up in arms over what so and so said. When people kinda stalk you and kinda talk about you unkindly, don’t let it bother you. Ignore it. Don’t even react. You don’t even know it’s happening. Your life is your message. It will pass soon enough. Add no fuel to the flame. Just get on with your own good life and pay no mind to anyone who doesn’t want to be part of it. My 88 year old aunt gets panic attacks watching hurricane updates. We’ve not had one since 2004 but she makes herself a basket case glued to the tv, running the ugly “what ifs” through her head. It gets exhausting when it becomes the main daily topic. You stop it by simply turning off the tv. Stop watching the movie that is driving you crazy, whatever it is. Take your attention off the chaos and it will drop out of your life. And if a hurricane is really coming, you’ll know in plenty of time to prepare yourself. Until then, get on with your happy life.
