5 by 5 Rule

If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes being upset by it…

I read this interesting quote on Instagram today and it got me thinking…

I believe this to be a good way of looking at life as i myself never tend to hold grudges or dwell on wrongdoings however, at the time of the incident how are you suppose to know if it will matter in 5 years time or not?

All those fights with ex boyfriends and ex friends more than 5 years ago could not have been prevented if i had read this quote because i didn’t know they wouldn’t be in my life now.

So maybe think of it this way instead…

If something or someone upsets you be upset, if they angry you be angry but if these feelings last more than 5 minutes then maybe the person who caused these feelings shouldn’t be in your life and probably wouldn’t be in 5 years if they carry on…
