Funny ... I dnt mean to be hateful but reading ths really stressed me out! For one thing how is "less is more" a universal concept? Sounds more like a home decor concept... stress is a part of life you can't ever avoid it altogether and if your not willing to help others with their problems then you really dnt have any right to ever ask for help yourself ... its an Outlook not an uplook..learning how to cope with problems works trying to avoid all problems doesn't work problem solving skills reduces stress attempting problem elimination increases stress.. selfishness me myself and I increases stress helping someone else validates our self worth as well as a daily good turn reduces stress... stuff happens...1)realize whatever your going through someone has already been there..your not alone 2) if others got through it so will you 3) initiate coping skills...prayer exercise or hobby talk it out etc. 3) all is well...remember the stress and problems of today are temporary "ths to will pass"
I know full well i should just take a moment to breath when im stressed but for some reason i forget to so thanks for reminding the power of a few minutes inhaling and exhaling-i just did it having felt v frustrated and lonely today and it helps :-)
The mind is your battleground. It’s the place where the greatest conflict resides. It’s where half of the things you thought were going to happen, never did happen. But if you allow those thoughts to dwell in your mind, they will succeed in robbing you of peace, joy, and ultimately your life. You will think yourself into a nervous breakdown, into depression, and into defeat. I know because I’ve been there.
Really good points. Thanks.
