Is Stress a Choice?
I’m listening to the audiobook from work by John Miller, The Question Behind the Question. He just suggested that potentially, or at least in part, stress is a choice. Part of that depends on – basically – on how you talk to yourself and others about your “situation,” i.e. do you talk like you are a victim?….
Why didn’t they give me more training on this?
Why is he/she such a jerk?
Why don’t they have better service here?
Or like this…
How can I adapt to my changing world?
I love that question. I’ve already been thinking about it several times a day. How can I adapt to my changing world?
That question helps me understand that I don’t have full control, but I do have SOME control. I dont’ have control of other people, but I have control of ME. I have control all situations, but I do have control over my RESPONSE to situations.
Anyway, I’m enjoying thinking hard on that question…
