If you think you have a problem, remember

A billion Chinese people don't care about your worries.

Truth, right? Anytime I feel oppressed, put-upon, or overwhelmed, I think of this. All of life's 'problems' are really a matter of perspective, right? There are people out there right now whom I do not know who are in a life and death struggle.

Makes my worries about an upcoming leisure trip seem trivial.

So stop, take a deep breath, and remember to ask yourself: how many people will die if [insert event here] doesn't happen?

If the answer is zero, then it ain't important.
