Before getting upset, ask, “Will anybody really know or care about this five years from now?”
If the answer is “no,” take a deep breath, relax, and let it go.
Most things will be “no.”
If the answer is “yes,” you have a crisis on your hands and getting upset about it will not help you deal with it. Instead, come up with a rational plan to move forward.
This does not mean deny your feelings, rather deal with them when the crisis is over.
