There is often a correlation between stress and the truth that when we’re at our most stressed we blurt the truth out. Perhaps that’s exactly what’s needed, we’ve just never had the courage to say it before.
Perhaps also somewhere in our subconscious, we’ve already made the correlation that stress and truth are inextricably linked, it’s just that we’re guarded on how we feel. It’s not that our thoughts aren’t there, but with other things on our mind, what we really think about something is usually on the back burner, buried somewhere in our subconscious.
It’s also not very often that we’re skilled at recognising the truth on how we really feel, but being truthful always helps alleviate stress. We’re not talking about telling a white or black lie to cover up, but instead telling those concerned the truth about how they make us feel, the things they do that cause us stress, the things that if we’re honest will have the capacity to dissipate our stress.
It’s easy to go through phases where we’re feeling angry, anxious, even irritable. If we’re open and honest, we’ll admit to others when that happens. It’s important to reflect on why our emotions are causing us to feel angry, anxious and irritable.
When we come to look deep within us, the answers are usually there. Often, we will dodge the issues by telling ourselves we’re not the problem and sometimes we’re not. Often others are to blame and the cycle continues.
