Fly Over

It is a great strength to remove and/or avoid the stimulus that consistently pisses you off.  Yet, many of us repeatedly walk into the same scenarios time after time, becoming upset each time that we observe the very predictable and negative behavior we have seen a hundred times before.  Why do we continue to hope for something different with no indication that it will ever change?

It’s not a sign of weakness, but rather a sign of wisdom to avoid the stress of a highly  predictable negative reaction.

Go around, fly over, or simply move on to become completely satisfied that you consciously decided to do so.

“How satisfying it is to dismiss and block out any upsetting or foreign impression, and immediately have peace in all things.”   —  Marcus Aurelius  —
