Stress & truth

It is usually when we’re at our most stressed that we blurt the truth out. It is exactly what is needed, we’ve just never had the courage to say it.

Perhaps somewhere in our subconscious, we have already made the correlation that stress and truth are inextricably linked, it’s just that we are guarded on how we feel. It’s not that those thoughts aren’t there, often what we really think is on the back burner, buried somewhere in our subconscious.

It’s also because we’re not always skilled at recognising the truth on how we feel, but being truthful will always help us alleviate stress. It’s telling those concerned the truth about how they make us feel, the things they do that cause us stress.

It’s easy for us to go through phases where we’re feeling angry, anxious, even irritable, but if we’re open and honest, we will admit to others just how we feel. It is important we reflect on why our emotions are causing us to feel angry and irritable.

When we look deep within us, the answers are there, but we dodge the issues by telling ourselves we don’t have a problem, sometimes we don’t the problem we have is with others. Yes, others are to blame and the cycle continues.

  1. Often times we are the problem. Man killing man, culture clashing with culture; it’s probably inherent in our very nature, which makes stress continue unabated.

    As for the truth, it will only rescue me from myself, all alone. It will not change the conditions that routinely cause stress.

    1. Having to conform is our biggest stress. I believe it’s up to us to find ways to either challenge the conditions, or conform and be okay with it.

      I think the biggest stress factor is knowing we have to conform and not knowing how to accept that which we know we have to conform to. We must primarily work together, to communicate and to be more accepting of people and their own beliefs.

      We must come to accept the truth because that will alleviate any stress that we have. The majority of us spend a lifetime in denial, fail to change anything and run away from our truth.

      1. Thanks Ilana. It seems that people live to dissect things, even the truth. Which is why we devote so much time and energy into trying to remain sane.

        But sometimes I have a strong feeling that some entity cares about what we go through.

        1. Your first paragraph resonates with me Tim. Yes, I believe you’re right about.

          We don’t have to convince others what we believe or know to be true, but that doesn’t make what we go through any easier, when it happens. People will always have their opinions of us.

          I also believe the Universe knows exactly what we go through and takes note of what we go through. We must come to understand how the Universe works and cares about us in those difficult situations.
