Stressed Out!

Here’s a word from Dawson…

So, how are you doing? Maybe you’re stressed out. It’s just like if one more thing gets put on your plate – it’s going to shatter.  And you think, there’s no hope. I don’t know how to…I’m stuck.

No, you’re not. You may be stuck but there is a way to get you unstuck. It may not be easy, but there is a way to do it.

My mama used to say, when you say ‘yes’ to somebody, you’re saying ‘no’ to somebody else. Think of that. As long as you’re saying your yeses in the right place to the right people for the right things – you’ll be alright. But often we say the yeses to the wrong thing or to too many things and then we’re stressed out.

These are anxious times – Covid, Cancel Culture, Inflation, and whatever else you are dealing with in your life. Anxiety feeds stress.  TheHopeLine has many resources that deal with anxiety and stress. While our focus is on students and young adults, God may have something here for you as well, regardless of your age.  Check it out.  https://www.thehopeline.com/topics/anxiety/
