If it didn't exist life would be so much easier. I realize there are so many things in life that we can't control, but when its so much at one time it is just unbelievable how it can make you feel. I hate feeling as if I'm losing control at times. Really when you think about it, whos in control anyways? Do we any of us really have anything to do with what happens to us?

I think we control a lot of things in our lives, specifically out attitudes. I take the attitude that I'm in control, I WILL have a good day, and I can do anything I set my mind to. So I really don't have much stress in my life like I used to.

I think that I do pretty good usually to keep myself calm and approach each situation with a positive attitude. However its when I feel like so much bad stuff is happening at one time that I have a difficult time making sense of it all and this is when the stress sets in. Its at these times that it all kinda rolls in to a big ball.

I know that feeling. About once a year, a bunch of bad stuff happens all at once and I feel overwhelmed. A good cry will do wonders in a situation like that!

I hate stress too but it is so hard to not think about or get rid of. I do everything I can to avoid it but there is always something to stress me out daily.

We all have limited control about what goes on around us, and what we do. Which makes it so much more important for me to do the right things because I want the things I can control to be the right and best things for myself and others. I believe God is going to take care of the rest of things I cannot control. He isn't going to let me live an easy life, no way. No one has an easy life But when I remember and I'm not so stubborn, I feel much less stressed when I give my problems to Him.

I don't know anyone that really likes stress. Stress however is a normal part of life and a little bit of stress sometimes is actually a good thing. However, too much stress too often is a really bad thing. I think people have control over their own lives to a certain extent. I think we can control how we handle situations and problems and how we handle them is how we control the stress and other parts of our lives that we do not really enjoy.
