Stressed Out

Stress: a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances

Stress, in the general sense, is caused by our unwillingness to accept the situation we are currently presented with. 

If everything was going as planned we wouldn’t be stressed. We’d feel good and we’d probably be in control. 

The next time we feel the onset of stress we have to look at the situation that is transpiring and recognize that we may not be in control of something or someone. 

Life is always going to be a struggle and it’s when we can control our emotions when we can’t control the situation that we have the best opportunity to let the stress subside more quickly and deflate a highly intense situation. 

By being accepting of these adverse circumstances, we give ourselves a better chance to let the stress pass by without causing undue harm. The harm that can end up being worse off than what got us stressed out in the first place.
