5. the physical pressure, pull, or other force exerted on onething by another; strain.
I really don’t think there is a specific definition for it though. I think for each person stress can be really different. I also think different people handle it different ways.
One thing I can say for sure is it is real. And everybody has it at one point or another in time. We also all deal with it in different ways. Some of us turn to vices. Food, drugs, alcohol.
It can really slip up on us without warning.. So how should we handle it? It seems to me like it hides behind the corner just watching and waiting for when I am in my best mood and then it pounces on me. It tries to knock me down and although I hate to admit it I usually let it run it’s course. I think when we do this it just causes a chain reaction like the cold or flu.
What is the cure? Do we just surrender and let it overwhelm us? Do we talk about it? Do we pretend it isn’t there?
In my 40 years I have dealt with several issues. I believe while I am trying to be a more positive person I will always have bad days. I just try to figure out the solution to what’s bothering me. Have a good try and go on.
Today I was stressed out over things and I thought of turning to my vice. Food. I am happy to say I got through it and didn’t. I wasn’t pleasant to live with, but I am stronger then any situation presented to me and I will always strive to overcome any negative situation lurking out there.
I have had a busy but good weekend for the most part. Maybe my next blog will be more upbeat? Who knows. Life is all about expecting the unexpected and going from there.
