We all have Stress. It comes in all shapes and forms. The key is how we handle it. That can be easier said than done at times. Life can be rough on us and it shows. Stress is the culprit.
No one is free from stress. Some of us just handle it better than others. There's all sorts of stress-free techniques, from yoga to music, to foods that are supposed to induce stress-free living. Isn't it really what we believe- that will work? And what works for one may not work for another. Besides, what does it mean to work?
When we are stressed we loose weight; or, and we may loose friends-for all those calls unreturned, or, just being unsociable; we may loose money-for deals carelessly made, or spend thrifts about; we may loose jobs for mistakes made in careers where there's no turning around; we may loose respect in ourselves for lack of diligence; we may loose faith in up above out of fear in the unknown. And so I could go on.
There is so little to gain with stress even with a change in perspective. A positive light would do best,but loss would be suffered. Stress will be stress. Its a part of life. Not meant to pity over, but to overcome. It strengthens us in the long run, but it still hard during its time. It takes a toll on a person and no one can take that from that person. Do we grieve it when its over? I don't think it is that type of a loss.
Stress has become a part of life and our body has learned to adapt to it. We don't have to like it to accept it. Its not going to go away. We just have to learn ways to cope and manage it so that we don't have to suffer such loss in more ways than one. Life itself is stressful, in so many degrees. Let me know what you think and what we can do as a society to decrease stress as a whole. Can it be done?
School is stressful for our kids. They have standardized testing now they must perform to levels of, and they come home with amounts of homework everyday. That's stressful. Never mind the demands of the family. Our careers have demands we must meet to promote ahead or meet expectations. That's stressful. The President and what direction he is taking our Nation. That's stressful. Politics. Government. Economics. Family. It all touches on something that leads to some notion of stress as a whole for our nation and other nations.
As a human we care about ourselves, and individually or collectively, that is stressful.What do you think?
