Holding on to Stress

Stress. Yeah, life is stressful. It’s our work, daily obligations, family, even traffic, plus whatever else it is we have going on in our day that all take a toll on us and sometimes we don’t even realize it. Our bodies are amazing entities, really. They know what’s wrong with us long before we do. Have you ever noticed how your body holds on to stress?  It’s many other places than just our minds.

When There’s Not A Reason

I have always been someone who takes responsibility for my actions, I say sorry when I mess up, I always try to see different sides of situations and I always make sure to solve my own problems rather than leaving them a mess for others to clean up. We can all dedicate ourselves to being that great person all we want, but that doesn’t guarantee us that bad things won’t happen.

An Anxious Mind

By reading the title of this you probably know whether it applies to you or not. I have been reading a lot the past few weeks (mostly blog posts but books too!!) and by the looks of it, I know that many of you know what I’m talking about.

It’s even more intense if you’re someone that typically feels calm and collected. You aren’t used to being shaken up all the time.

You think that days can only get so bad but then life shows you that it can get worse. You wonder constantly what you did to deserve this, and you never get any answers. You can only take so much until you feel like this feeling is all you have. Life is unfair. You can’t find anyone else to put the blame on. You cant even blame yourself most of the time.

An Emotional Abuser

Why would we purposely let ourselves get involved with an emotional abuser? Obviously we wouldn’t, but it happens. And that’s why it is so hard to recognize it because it happens without our knowledge.
Loving an emotional abuser is like a drug, you don’t think that it’s bad for you because you’re having a good time, until you find out it has destroyed your outlook on life, self esteem, and eventually you’re addicted and getting away isn’t an option. You think you can stop anytime you want, but they control you now.
