On Stress

“Everyday conversation is peppered with references to lack of time to accomplish goals, the frustration of poor communication and a general sense that no matter how fast you go, you will not get it all done and no one understands. Defining the word ‘stress’ in one sentence is difficult for it is actually the unification of multiple human responses to life into a single concept that nearly everyone experiences. There are very few people who do not know what stress feels like. The odd realization is that you believe only you are stressed. Everyone else looks calm, cool and collected – at least most of the time. Once again, the mind through your perception separates you from the ‘other’ in an effort to keep you in control of your reality. When you are in stress, you are in extreme separation which, in turn, accentuates the stress.”
