See the glass already broken: Every rock is formed and every rock will vanish. It is only a matter of when. Use perspective. And instead of thinking, "Oh my God!," find yourself thinking, "Ah, there it goes..."
Search for the grain of truth in other's opinions: When you judge someone else's opinion, it doesn't say anything about the other person, but it does say something about your need to be judgmental.
Seek first to understand: Become more interested in understanding the other person, rather than being understood.
