Sometimes I need to take a step back so that I come up for air every now and again, to look at where I’m at and what I’m dealing with. It’s so important.
Although my blogs show a more confident version of me, my insecurities from childhood will re-surface every now and again. Sadly, stress isn’t always obvious.
It’s the feeling you have when you’re getting hot under the collar, where everything and everyone’s coming at you and you’re not sure which way to turn; that’s when you know you’re dealing with stressful situations and stress.
That’s when we need to take a step back, take stock on what’s going on around us, so that we get to decide how we get to deal with our problems. I stand back, then use reflection as a tool, to help me decide which way I need to go.
