A great deal of our stress comes from others – they feel it, express it and we soak it up like a sponge and carry it around until for our own sanity we have to squeeze it out.
In other words, if you could not absorb the stress that others feel (those close to us, related to us or in our path), we would reduce life’s stressor and have a better chance to deal with our own.
By prioritizing a reasonable number of things that make us anxious and deciding which ones to handle first.
And there are tools – scheduling all worries for one specific hour, one day a week keeping the rest of your life relatively stress-free.
Remembering that 99% of what we worry about never happens and the 1% that does usually doesn’t happen the way we fear.
But the big deal is resisting the stress in our lives generated by others.
