Creating Balance in a World of Stress View this video trailer
So many things cause us stress in our day to day lives. Do you want to know what the real#1 stressor is, it’s people (or should I say your perception of people). Well that's the majority of it anyway. Yep, I know it’s hard to believe. If I were the only person in this world, the world would be stress free. Okay, you can be here too but you’ll have to stay on your side of the world. We can put duck tape right down the middle.
Now that I know you’re on the other side of the world, it's kinda stressful being alone...I sure could use a friend. We could visit from time to time, maybe do lunch - but we’ll have to set rules. Otherwise without rules you may (not intentionally of course) stress me out!
So let’s start with the basic 'People who don’t Stress People' rules.
#1. You have to accept me for me and not try to change me. That doesn’t mean I won’t ever change but I need to be the one to make those decisions.
#2. I’ll always respect how you feel. I’ll never tell you how you should feel. I may not understand why you feel the way you do but I do understand that you’re feelings are very real.
#3. If you’re having a difficult time with something or just aren’t feeling up to snuff, please don’t take it out on me and I’ll do the same. We need to help each other, not try to drag each other down just so that we’re both miserable – then we’ll be stuck with no other friend in the world to pull us out of our misery!
Okay, I don’t want to overwhelm you with rules or you’ll never come to my side of the world to visit me. So what do you say? Friends?
We’ll work together to overcome all the other issues of stress that we place on each other as we go through this site. You’re my best friend (ok only friend but still……)
P.S. – As my new stress free best friend if you want to ask me any questions or just send me an email to say Hello (Good thing we still have technology) or borrow a cup of sugar you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also just to give me something to do - I'd appreciate it - if you wouldn’t mind that is.
