How To Not Let Things Bother You

This is how to not let things bother you, or an explanation of why I think that things don't bother me as much as some other people. I might be wrong completely, but it doesn't bother me all that much. If things are bothering you, perhaps you will find some good tips here, or maybe not, I don't care.

This is how to not let things bother you, or my experiences on the subject. At times, I have found simple things really annoy me, for example, there's a park outside my window, and late at night, there are often drunk people yelling and screaming, it's very annoying. 

How do you not let things like that bother you? Well, sometimes I go into another room, or turn the TV up, or I play a video game to take my mind off the noise. 

This is just masking the problem though, you have to get at the root of why those things bother you. For me, the reason why drunk aggressive people bother me is because I have had bad experiences with drunk aggressive people. 

So, perhaps the solution to my problem is to go out and talk to some drunken idiots in a bar, and try to have a good time with them. If I replace the negative experiences with positive ones, then perhaps I will hear drunken yelling in a similar way as I would hear children playing. 

It doesn't bother me as much when I hear the children yelling and screaming in the park during the daytime, so perhaps if I replace my negative impression of drunken people yelling with the positive image of children laughing and shouting in the playground, then I won't be so annoyed. 

How To Not Let Things Bother You

Another way to not let things bother you is meditation. If you just sit comfortably, and close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths, you can find that it can help you relax.

Breathe in through the nose, and out through the mouth. Positive feelings in, negative feelings out. Try to clear you mind of all thoughts, except your own breathing. 

This is not easy to do, and takes many years to master, and there are various techniques that can help you focus your mind, like concentrating on the sound of one hand clapping, or whether a tree falling in the forest makes a sound if there is noone there to hear it. 

Anyway, I would suggest that most Buddhist monks look like they aren't too bothered by things, and some other religious people seem the same most of the time, so perhaps that's the perfect way of training your mind not to worry about things.
