Our reactions to stress

It’s not the stress that kills us. It’s our reaction to it.

– Dr. Hans Selye

We all handle stress differently, and we sometimes react in ways that cause us to overthink and perhaps, overreact.
We all have our own reasons for those reactions; however, it doesn’t justify who we are – it allows us to explore our inner feelings and emotions in order to understand ourselves (and situations) better. We can then learn how to turn that stress into something meaningful and positive by taking the time to understand it and do something about it.

While what one person may think is the end of the world, another may think it’s nothing at all. While one person may think that something is so easy to do, another may find it extremely hard. But here’s the thing – EACH situation is different, and how you handle it, is your victory. Whether it takes five minutes or five years! Everything in life is a process, and some things take longer to achieve and/or overcome than others.

Don’t beat yourself up for words that were said or actions that were taken. The more you think about it, the more your body will react in a negative way. Focus on TODAY, and the good that is around you – family, friends.

Try to find peace within, and acknowledge the stress that is triggered. Find a way to accept the changes and keep moving forward…life just doesn’t stop! ❤️
