So... I'm a bit stressed right now.
I used to think that stress didn't affect me, that I could tough everything out and weather any storm without a problem. Lately I've been doing better about recognizing the stress in my life and the effect it has on me and it's helped to develop resiliency... but I still find myself wishing for a lighter load instead of broader shoulders.
