When chaos is erupting, I can stop and ask myself these questions: Does this situation really involve me? If the situation doesn’t really involve me, what is my motivation for getting involved?
Every time I feel myself getting pulled into other people’s nonsense, I can repeat these words: Not my circus, not my monkeys. It’s up to me not to let other people suck me into their chaos. I must remember that when I am disturbed, there is something disturbing in me! The goal is to remain undisturbed – to remain in my serenity.
I must stop and think before I react. At what price am I willing to give up my serenity?
