What is Stress and Why does this Word Overpower Us?
Is stress natural?
Yes, it is!
You know how…
When you were born, you got introduced to a world filled with so many people around you. But you were innocent. As time went by, the society around you expected you to behave in a particular fashion. This included your parents too.
They were tough out of love and affection for you. Because they wanted to bring out the best in you. So, they taught you the basic etiquettes. They bought you branded clothing- all out of love and affection.
Then, your school life began. They expected you to get in the race of becoming the smartest kid in class. Through studies, sports etc. the word competition walked into your life.
Time went by and so the pressure in studies mounted. Now, you had parallel expectations to deal with.
1) The need to be excellent in studies, so you get good jobs in the future.
2) The need to be prime and proper to make mom, dad, relatives and friends happy.
From then to today, stress has been a part of your life in many such ways.
There are instances when you want to scream out loud because you are either forced or emotionally blackmailed into doing something against your will.
There are moments when you feel like running away...
How does low self-confidence develop?
There must have been a moment you said to yourself "Now what do I do? I need to make my parents happy so might as well do what they tell me".
“I don’t want to annoy them. After all, my parents have done so much to provide me with the best education and a good life. I am afraid to tell them what I really want.”
That is when you slipped into “the low self-confidence mode”.
Time goes by. You are in the space of doing what the world wants you to do. You become the acceptor and not the person you are. Eventually, you shy away from people. You avoid interacting with them and making too many friends. You develop a fear with the thought
“What if they don’t like my view or opinion? What if they laugh at me?”
Again, that is low self-confidence creeping in.
You were never born that way. You were born innocent and stress-free.
You were born to talk your heart out. But circumstances have drawn you to a cocoon of despair, staying alone and being a mere acceptor. This has further complicated the lives of so many people. Problems of depression, anxiety, drug & alcohol addiction are on the rise due to lack of healthy stress management.
But life is beautiful as it always was.
You do need to vent out, to talk to someone.
Someone who could hear you out without judging you like the world has been doing all these years.
Let’s talk and allow me to be that NON-JUDGMENTAL FRIEND of yours. Allow me to help you sail smooth and bridge the gap between you & your life.
As I said before, life is beautiful, it is us- people who complicate it. So let’s rewind and reboot ourselves.
