As scary as being at your breaking point may be, make a conscious effort not to be easily provoked. Remember, the key to winning is to stay calm and listen to your mind. When facing a critical point in your relationship, how you react defines the outcome. Whether your relationship with your family or friends works out or not depends on you, not on anybody else. So, if what you want is to sort out all the obstacles and not to lose something you treasure deeply, don’t let your emotions get the best of you. Pride is the worst enemy that you can’t easily shrug off your back.
To avoid stress from entering your life, you need to stop doing things that enable it in the first place. In your twenties, it is crucial to commit to a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle. This involves daily meditation and assessment of your thoughts, emotions, and relationships to practice accountability for your actions. Make it a habit to reflect on the way you handled a situation and assess whether it’s good behavior or a bad one.
Stress comes in many forms when we’re under an extreme amount of pressure. At any age, we are no strangers to stress. But as we grow, the more susceptible we are to the littlest scenarios that cause us stress since the expectations we have put on our shoulders are getting heavier and ridiculous. In our twenties, this ridiculous internal pressure to become successful in the quickest way possible is intense. We constantly feel the need to work since taking a break is considered an act of weakness.
