We are often blinded by our own worries, problems, and stress. So much so that we can’t see anyone else’s issues. We think we are the only ones who are hurting or dealing with so many conflicts. It’s easy to get caught up in our own lives and not realize that there are people surrounding us that need us.
So, how do we step away from our blinding stress? Prayer, stepping away from the stress for a break, lots of long hugs from supportive friends and family. We are not going to ever completely relieve all the stress in our lives. Part of living is dealing with conflicts, problems and worries. We need to realize that and not make them the center of all that we are. God said he will take care of us and not to worry. Each day we need to wake up, say a prayer and ask God to help us do the best we can and leave the rest to him. We need to make sure to love the ones who love us daily. Not only will that help them it will help us as well.
