One of the manifestations of human nature that we could all do without is stress. We stress out over a lot of stuff. Some things are worth getting concerned about, but many are not. I read the following from a great little book a few years back and it is so true:

Stop to consider the thing you're currently stressing out over. Now try to project out 6 months. Ask yourself, will this thing matter in 6 months? If the answer is 'no', there is really no reason to stress over it because it will obviously pass.

This is good advice to share with a friend who is freaking out about something minor. It's an attitude that you may not be able to master overnight. In time though, you can learn to stress less over things that matter little.
