To keep things in perspective

An example in English: I was stranded at the airport, and to keep sane, I kept things in perspective, knowing that I am not the first person that this has happened to.

Me estoy embarrancado en el aeropuerto, y para quedar cuerdo, nececito
mantener mi perspective sabiendo que no soy la primera persona que sufrió las mismas circunstancias.

Estoy varado en el aeropuerto y para no volverme loco, necesito mantener mi perspectiva sabiendo que no soy la primer persona que ha pasado por esto. (o) ha pasado por estas mismas circunstancias.
