Well, you can ask yourself following questions.
(I assure you your panic will be gone by the time you read the last question.)
1.) As an individual, I’m one amongst 7 billion people on the planet. Our solar system is one amongst billion others in Milky Way. Milky Way is one amongst billion other galaxies in the universe.
So technically, I’m just a dot on a rock revolving around a star. A star, which itself is a dot in the universe.
Now ask yourself, the problem that you’re panicking over; is it really significant?
2.) Okay. Let’s assume your problem is a significant one. But, is there anything you can do about it? Or is it totally out of your control?
3.) What’s the worst that could happen? Is there any possibility that you’ll still be okay afterwards?
(By okay I mean, will you still be alive?)
4.) What will happen, if you did nothing, but simply kept breathing for 10 minutes?
Truth be told, there’s no order to the universe. Panic & chaos are at the very chore of it.
We are living on a beautiful planet in midst of the raging hurricane of the universe. The least we can do is appreciate how lucky we are, instead of panicking over our petty troubles.
