'Life isn't an emergency unless you make it so'.
Some people enjoy an emergency and thrive on the energy and buzz that goes with it. I'm not one of them. It's taken me some years to realise that simply because someone throws you the ball doesn't mean you have to catch it, respond or get involved. You can simply refuse to play and watch the ball bounce harmlessly on bye. However some people won't like it because it then forces them to retrieve their own ball and that's not in the book of 'I throw and you catch' rules of life.
