Breathe. Just breathe and relax. That's what I spend most days telling myself. People just stress me out. Hell is other people.
So... I need a solution. I find it unlikely that I am going to be able to change the world. The behaviours that annoy me (selfishness, illogical thinking, slowness, thoughtlessness) are pretty much part of the human condition.
When I was younger I got around without stressing out by berating myself. I just kept telling myself I was the idiot, I was the fool and most other people in the world were better than me. Sure it might have depressed me but it kept me from feeling stressed all the time. People were doing things differently to me because they knew better than I did and it made sense to them because they were vastly more intelligent.
I can no longer fool myself into believing this. All humans (myself included) are idiots. I truly cannot comprehend how some people can't understand things that are so clear to me. For instance: why can't people understand that standing to the side of the doors when the train stops helps the flow of people. It's so simple.
Maybe somethings are just because I'm tall. I can see how a crowd is working and who is holding it up. I almost always realise the crowd has formed because of one or two acts of extreme stupidity followed up by people not using logical thinking (slow people to one side, fast another).
So I need to change. I need to stop worrying. I need to relax. I find it hard to constantly worry about other people and how they perceive my actions when no one else seems to bloody care.
I must be in the wrong. I can't be the only person who is sane. Any suggestions on how not to worry about others?
