Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that stress is not necessarily just par for the course. We often tell ourselves that stress is just to be expected when we pursue a certain type of career, open ourselves up to various opportunities, or even choose to become a part of select relationships.
The interesting thing, though, is that stress is not mandatory, no matter what we tell ourselves. It is our approach to situations and circumstances, our perspective, and the things that we tell ourselves that determine whether or not stress will factor into the equation.
So, when we find ourselves feeling stressed or wondering why stress seems to be rearing its head in our lives without its presence being desired, we need to check our approach, perspective, and the contents of our self-talk and find out at which point we opened the door and gave stress the invite to enter into our lives. #lovebythedrop
