When Stress Becomes Too Much

Do you ever just become one big ball of stress? Like every daily activity just comes with new stresses to add to the old stresses?

I always find these things tend to pop up when I’ve let my guard down and things have been going well for a while. Then all of a sudden things come up at work and your pet gets sick and those big things make you shut down, causing you to stress even more about the little things.

Because now I care that I’ve been eating like crap. And now I can’t sleep well anymore. And I just can’t do anything because the big stresses caused little stress and I am just walking stress at this point.

It almost feels like there is not much you can do. It would be easier to just lay down and nap than face the day. But big problems can be solved, you’ve done it before. And little problems are just that – little.

One step at a time, one problem at a time, and one solution at a time the stress will go away. It won’t happen all at once or overnight, but sooner rather than later things will return to normal. You can’t let stress get the best of you, the more it takes over your life the harder it will be to get rid of.

Enjoy the ride, right?

  1. I know exactly how you feel. This has been a very stressful year. My husband developed a rare disorder and needed surgery, his recovery has been slow, we had to move, I’m studying for a certification at work and need to pass the test before the end of the year, my brother was sick so I had to take time from work to take care of him, my grandmother passed away and my duties at work are increasing. It seems everything is piling up. But like you said, deal with one stressor at a time, one day at a time. Matthew 6:27-34 reminds me that we can’t add any time to our lives by worrying and being anxious about the next day. For me, prayer has helped me tremendously. I throw my burdens on God and he helps me through (1 Peter 5:7).
