5 Things You Shouldn't Stress About

Written by:

Question: what do you get from stressing over things, in general?
Answer: None.
So why do it time and again?

Beats me. Haha!

But seriously: do you find yourself so often worrying about alot of things that you feel so overwhelmed, unhappy and lost?

This is because you are holding on to a lot of things (and thoughts) that are weighing you down and making you feel that you need to resolve them all at the same time or find a way to escape.

Truth be told though: you don't have to.

It's basically the pressure from everyone else around you to conform with the norm and the extreme pressure you put on yourself to be in control always. Quite unhealthy, if I may say, in so many ways: physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, socially...and the list goes on, every time you stress yourself big time.

Taking those in consideration, it is very important to travel light as you journey towards becoming your own #bestmeever . Unburdening yourself from all the unnecessary stress allows you to go further and grow more in the process.

So today, allow me to share with you the 5 things you shouldn't be stressing about:

  1. Your past

Close that chapter. It's over and done with, no matter how that will look like for you. Remember: stressing about it won't ever bring things back the way you want them to be. There are no rewinds; only flashbacks so instead of dwelling on what could have been, why not just focus on what is, here and now? At least you have the chance to create the changes you want for yourself as of the moment.

2. Your current state

Nothing is permanent in this world, including your current space. So if you're having difficulties as of the moment, know that it will pass. Same goes when you're having the best time of your life. Key here is to make the most of the moment. Stop overthinking or you'll miss out on the magic of the now. Allow yourself to be 100% present as you learn and grow from the experience, no matter how that will look like.

3. Things beyond your control

Being in an unfamiliar setting can be quite scary. And admittedly when things go wrong, as they sometimes will, we find ourselves struggling to regain control. However, in the process, we forget the beauty of surrendering when things beyond our control happen. Stressing over things beyond our control won't fix the matter on hand; letting things be as we take responsibility over our actions and trust the process, will.

4. Choosing what's best for you

You know yourself best and you are very much deserving as much as anyone else. Never stress yourself over the reactions of others whenever you choose what will make you genuinely happy, complete and fulfilled. It's your life; you don't need the approval of others to live the way you want to.

5. The future

Here's one thing for certain: no matter how prepared you are, you can't say for sure how the future will be. While it's good to invest early on, never deprive yourself to enjoy the present. Depriving yourself of today's joys won't ever guarantee a future that's worth living. Give yourself a chance to just be, today. Because that is what you deserve, here and now. Do all that you can, with all that you have and then let go and move on with your life as of the moment.

I hope this post allows you to unburden yourself from the unnecessary stress in your life as of the moment.

Remember: when you let go, you grow.
And that will always be worth it.

Begin Your #bestmeever Journey.
