But it is also true that people FREAK out over things that are small, that are not emergencies. I often wonder if it isn’t something biological that unconsciously requires certain people to stress, to freak out, as if the act of stressing makes something happen in their bodies and brains that is needed. It might not be healthy, but somehow the body and brain feed off it, need it, and so their life is designed to have stress, to have drama, even if they say they don’t like it.
That is one of the most important things to look at when trying to figure out how to change your life. Figure out WHY you like this thing you say you hate enough to have it repeat again and again. The thing you hate whether it be stress or drama or something else, gives you something you want, inspite of you hating it. What is that?
