I Am Stressed Out

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,772 People

    Stress is caused by giving a ****.

    sometimes wish I didn't care and could go around not giving a ****, need to practice on that. seems I'm stressed over half the time, only thing that seems to help are anxiety pills, they help with the anxiety / stress that goes on in my life. whatever works though!

    Sometime you can't overcome with everything,

    but you will learn a great lesson from it. If you fall then try to stand up and start again.

    I've made decisions in my life

    that some family members have taken exception to. I'm so overwhelmed by rejection and arguments ..... Why is one generation so accepting of those who identify with LBGTQI and yet others will slam the door in your face?

    Everything is piling on top of everything else

    and the pointless tasks that need done are shouting in my ear. I have so much more important things to take care of than all of this. But of course, I suppose I'm the only one that considers them important.
