Is there a way to have a Flow run without triggering other Flows?

I have a scheduled flow that queries all Contacts and confirms which are still active and updates the Account. 

However, I keep receiving the "UNABLE_TO_LOCK_ROW: unable to obtain exclusive access to this record or 120 records" error.  I believe it is because of other processes/flows triggering.

I don't need any other processes to run for this Flow.  Is it possible to allow this Flow to run without triggering other Flows?
