Stop Feeling Guilty Accepting your limitations makes you stronger.
This is the headline on the cover of October 2014 Arthritis self-management magazine. I am not going to write about arthritis. I never read the article since I was leaving when I happened to see the headline. This headline fits so many circumstances that I was inspired to write my own article about it.
While there are plenty of things we can change about our lives, there are some things that just aren’t going to change regardless of how many hoops we try to jump through. We can’t please everybody, but we can sometimes help ourselves. If where you are right now is causing you so much stress that you’re having anxiety attacks, or worse, and may be interfering with your life, then you definitely need a change.
Stress seems to be on the rise and it definitely affects women more than men. I copied the chart below from the apa.org website. 1So if you are stressed out, please consider seeking help from your healthcare professional, an holistic healer, aromatherapy, meditation, yoga or any of the many ways of dealing with stress. Sometimes, it calls for a drastic change of scenery.
For instance, I’m so stressed out right now, that it’s a wonder that I’ve not had either a meltdown, or a heart attack. So…since I can’t change things here, I’m leaving here as soon as possible. Because I’ve lived with way too much stress most of my life and I certainly don’t need anymore.
