The main reason many people are stressed about life is that they can't accept the reality. They have very high expectations and therefore disappointment comes easily. It's not about not having any dreams or being fatalist. It is about being wise enough to accept how reality you cannot change even if it can be hard sometimes.
2- Choose to behave yourself
No matter how others act in front of you or behind your back. It's up to you to choose how you will to react. You should be prepared mentally to always find the best way to avoid conflict that can destroy inner peace. If you are faced with a rough situation, do not react instantly but remain silent until you can give way to your anger or sadness and keep calm. The best way is to escape for a while or take a break.
