Stress is omnipresent. Either children or grown-ups or very elderly people would undergo the phenomenon called 'stress' at some point of time and some of them acquire it as their inheritance in their lifestyle not knowing how to deal with it.

There is no such thing as stress

Just think that the so called stress goes off as it came.

Stress is plaguing the modern world. Many executives suffer from cardiovascular ailments arising out of stress.

Some people expressed that however you try to find the reality of stress, it is always haunting you when you have not kept the promises or when you feel guilty of wrong-doing or when there are some urgent things to do or when the near and dear are in trouble or when you see someone suffering.

There is nothing like stress, as a matter of fact.

In any situation, stress is created by one's own thinking that something is going wrong that is assumed to cause harm leading to some loss which is often taken as an unpleasant happening.

When a thing has to happen, it just happens and it cannot be stopped from happening however we try to change the course of action.

All happenings are akin to the sun rising and setting, though we know that as the earth moves on its axis the sun appears to rise and set in a day's cycle; during the course of the sun's journey on any day, there may be heavy downpours, the sky may look gloomy with the clouds, the oceans may entail tsunamis, but the sun never stops rising and setting.

Similarly, whatever must happen will happen irrespective of the stress created in the heart of a human. Human thinking is like a gloomy sky or a clear sky depending on the maturity and evolution of one's own thinking.

Nevertheless, it is humane to attribute the causes to one's own deeds, deliberately done or undone; this kind of analysis is not just meaningless but that is the reality. When we understand this phenomenon, the stress actually does not arise in any situation.

There is no such thing as stress.

Nan Joe,
You're right. Compromising at some point is essential when we can't expect exactly what has been desired.

Very good write Rathnashikamani. To me stress seems to be the anticipation of regret. In the words of one my favorite American Country and Western singers: "regret is just a memory I wear upon my brow and there's nothin' I can do about it now"....Willie Nelson.
Once we reach the point to which a situation can no longer benefit from our contribution it is better to let it go. If we can still help a situation through our contribution, it is a waste to spend time and energy stressing about it. I know that is easier said than done.

Stress is a normal physiological response to situations or stimulus, with the human body perceiving them as 'harmful', 'dangerous'.

I have to admit I have been on a stress roller coaster for months and you know just yesterday, I had a talk with myself and I put it all in perspective and now, I have freed myself of that load. You're so right, we can not stop some things from happening, we can only handle the aftermath much better. Thank you for sharing.:)
