What helps you deal with your stress?
My biggest stress factor would have to be money and bills. Although I’m overwhelmed with it I still try to remain calm by telling myself “It’s no big deal I’ll get to it when I can.” Music is another alternative that helps me relax. listening to my favorite songs puts me in my comfort zone and kills my stress.
I agree with you, I feel like money and bills are definitely one of my biggest stressors as a young adult. I feel like another one would be just trying to continually accept myself in a society where everyone is “supposed” to be a certain way but I’m totally different than everyone else. It’s okay to be different and on most days I’m okay with that, but on some days I do get annoyed that society is just dumb sometimes.
