“Just when you feel you have no time to relax, know that this is the moment you most need to make time to relax.”
― Matt Haig, Reasons to Stay Alive
Stress, it is part of daily life! You feel it in your job, school, and even in the home. Since it is almost a daily thing, the issue is, how do I deal with it.
Not dealing with it and so it starts building up within our being. Almost for certain, that somewhere in the future it will blow up like an unwatched pressure cooker.
In my younger years I was not educated on how to manage and deal with the stress in my life. I pushed it down within, tried to pretend that everything was alright. Yet, every so often I would have a melt down. My temper would get the best of me. I was never violent, but I would just lash out.
