Anxiety (Page 9)
toolsoftrust: The problem is that people misunderstand stress. They think that its unusual or an illness or something that should be absent. Stress is the natural cause of strength, when we respond right. Too often we respond to stress anxiously. Anxiety is a bad response to stress.
A good analogy is a diving board. It's designed to handle stress. So are we. If we didn't like the way it bounced up and down, we could try to beat it up, but that wouldn't be very good. We'd probably hurt ourselves.
I try to respond the right way when facing stress. Usually 100% of our time includes some kind of stress, internal or external. There's something very wrong when we try to avoid stress. We should try our best to befriend it, like a diving board.
