With the exception of dreams and goals, it is important to keep all things in their proper context and/or maintain perspective. I have seen and experienced small problems and things of seemingly no consequence that have been greatly exaggerated when isolated. These now larger issues tend to get very complicated and initial intentions are easily overlooked and sometimes lost.
I really try to stay composed and objectively deal with information but that is not always reality. My default is to see things in black and white. However, outside of numbers, everything is subject to interpretation and it is not always about facts. In real time, it is hard to be pragmatic all the time. I have to consciously step back and reassess the context and/or alter my perspective because chances are - it is not that serious. Do you have this same problem?
That is the beauty of life, it is fluid and not an equation and there are endless possibilities.
