this or that. Take a step back. Look at the situation. Remember that a lifetime is a long time. Remember that a lifetime is just a vapor in the wind of Time. Remember that you are dust. Think about whether this will matter in 10 days (apply this method in other ways as well.. 10 seconds, 10 minutes, 10 weeks, 10 months, etc.).

Remember the Truths of Scripture.

God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he has loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – for by grace you have been saved! – and raised us with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show what are the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness towards us in Christ Jesus.

Get some perspective. Look through scripture and remember what matters.
