Everything is overwhelming when you’re on your own. Oh, is that not how the Lego song goes? Shoot, that’s sure how it feels these days. Looking at houses for sale, dieting, stress management, career-broadening.. just a whole lot of stress and not a whole lot of relief.
I need to find a method of stress management that is both healthy and effective. This is the key. It’s so easy to find coping mechanisms that are unhealthy and even detrimental overall, causing more stress than you were previously trying to cope with. Then you have things that feel like coping mechanisms, but they’re really not. They’re just you fooling yourself into thinking it’s working, but really it has nothing to do with it and you’re still stressed while you do whatever you came up with doing.
It’s a struggle to find balance. I have not found the balance. I haven’t even come close. So that is my quest for this month. Find my balance of stress and healthy stress management, so that I can stop sabotaging my own life and every aspect therein.
Do you have any healthy coping mechanisms? How did you discover it? Does it work?
Clearly, a girl needs help.
