Your question is actually part of your answer; You are in control of your thoughts and moods; if you are bothered by someone or some thing, it's because YOU CHOOSE to let it bother you; OTHERWISE, some one or some thing controls your moods and not yourself. If you can change what bothers you, then do so; If you cannot change it, then, realize it's in the same category with things like, the weather; you can't change it, so you adapt and accept it. Hope this helps.

I would like to add that in fact we have self will, this self will must be accompanied by auto distancing from your OWN emotions, to put it plainly, step back, count 1,2,3,4,5,6 then think...why do I feel angry? who makes me angry, his words or MY EMOTIONS? I agree with the statement above, only YOU can control your OWN emotions, and while I am at it , YOU CANNOT EVER CONTROL OTHERS EMOTIONS OR ACTIONS. You can only change yourself. Sounds simple? It is, but why don`t people do this, because it requires you to ananlyze the reasons why, somehting that people don't want to do because it requires admitting somethings, that well, we don't want to. In fact, this is an excercise in emotional intelligence spoken by Daniel Goleman, who is the foremost expert on the subject. In fact, you can put his name along with "emotional intelligence" and you will find lots of info on him.

P.S: I AM A PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR TAKING ADVANCED COURSES.

"Mind over matter" -- If you don't mind than it doesn't matter.

I know that sounds overly simplistic, but if you really think about it, it is that simple.

Dont let it bother you. forget it.

But let's not bother.

unless you know it is something that has great importance and you've already asked them straight up then just let it go. A friend is not obligated to tell you everything. It is best to let this go and not bother her about it as when/if she is ready she will let you know. Let it go.

Don't let it bother you, call up some of your other friends and do something with them. If people are not talking to you for whatever reasons don't let them get to you - there are other people to be your friends.

if you do something wrong it will.

No. Mermaids do not exist and you cannot bother something that doesn't exist.

Don't let them get to you as that is what they are looking for from you - a reaction. If you let on that it really does not bother you they will eventually get bored with it and find something/someone else to pester. I can't begin to understand why people do this but ignorance and their own selfishness.

If there was no electricity you would have to do a thing that is so scary and gruesome that i recommend that no one under the age of 34 read this answer. You would have to actually write the essay on your own!!!! That's right, you heard me correct. Without electricity there would be no internet so you could cheat and get someone else to do it.

to bother or interfere with someone or something.

that probably means he likes you too. Guys can be hard to read but don't let it bother you. If he likes you, he'll do something about it.
