A critical part of living sanely is to understand that you need to focus your energies on the things you can change, and not waste energy on things that can be ignored.
This cartoon is an illustration of that principle. If the things being thrown at you are not going to hit you, don’t waste energy on reaching out to your arms to deflect them. Just let them go by.
Focus only on the dangers that are really going to harm you.
News about world events? Mostly stress that serves no purpose. Ignore them.
Insults, real or imagined? Let them go.
Family tension? Better to focus on the positive?
