Circumstances 

“You shouldn’t give circumstances the power to rouse anger, for they don’t care at all.” 

– Marcus Aurelius 

Circumstances are incapable of considering or caring for your feelings, your anxiety, or your excitement. They don’t care about your reaction. So stop acting like getting worked up is having an impact on a given situation. Situations don’t care at all. 

The Daily Stoic pg 63
