Even though we aren’t paranoid, it’s common to let our mind wander, think the worst, take things out of context, then be bothered by it. This creates turmoil and burns up energy. When that happens, it’s refreshing to stop and just stick to the facts.

We can’t read anyone’s mind and if it’s not true for us, why do we care?
Let us separate the facts and stick to what we know is true for us today.
