Today I had something else planned to write about, but my dealing with stress needed to come first. Since mum died, there have been lots of changes, some of which I have personally instigated, because of my own personal health and the changes others have instigated, fully expecting my family and I to work and fit into, without our consent.
We’re finding that hard, then our pet rabbit (toffee), died at the weekend and an untimely death in the family after that. Both these events have added to my stress. Any changes are bound to have an affect on us and the way we get to deal with things.
Stress isn’t unique we all have stress, we just need to work out what’s the best way to limit the amount of stress we let in. Whenever we’re busy, we hold our thoughts together. We don’t at that point have the time to think about the things that may be considered stress factors. We push ourselves, then when it’s time to rest, we struggle to keep our thoughts together.
I’m sure us getting back into a better routine from the summer break will help. For now, all I can do is try and limit the stress. We don’t have to agree on everything, we just need to compromise and be there to support each another. We all have to work on it.
