This would be a great example of emulating nature except that unlike ants, we put barriers and guardrails up to keep everyone in line until a few idiots who are speeding or staring at their phones run into each other and block the path. Then the rest of us have nowhere to go and nothing to do but sit and wait...

At least I'm not trying to sell one, buy another and time it so that I'm not homeless during the interim...
Oh wait, that's exactly what I'm trying to do!
Perception... no mater how bad I think it is or difficult it seems to be, there are those that are far worst off. I am grateful that I have these kinds of problems to deal with and still need to keep in mind those less fortunate. It is easy to get caught up in the drama of our own lives and forget those that need our help. How we deal with the adversities that face us is just as important as anything else we do. And it also shows the merit if our character.
“I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
This means there are no short cuts or tricks to dealing with it. You just have to cross the desert one step at a time. Sure, it’s good to have friends to keep you company along the way, but it is your journey. This can be terrifying knowing that you have to face something so unpleasant. But, once the journey is through you will be past it and a stronger person for it.
