You think you know what stress is, but do you?
I think the term ‘stress’ is oversimplified. Sure, sometimes just venting ‘I’m stressed!’ is helpful to get some of the negative energy out, let people know how you are generally feeling, or explain your behavior.
But ‘stress’ is so overused, so ambiguous, and so cliche.
And I only mention that because that means the word is losing it’s meaning.
Also, because stress is often a result of the ‘shoulds’, in the context of the Are vs Should Problem.
What is stress, then, really?
All that and more.
Stress is the result of a dissonance between how you feel and how you want to feel.
Generally, we want to feel good. Stress is a general description of feeling bad.
