Do you ever feel like something is dragging you down
Something that is frequently on your mind
Something that is causing you to have a bad day
Something is giving you unwanted stressoranxiety
A part about me that I have not really shared with all of you is my anxiety
I have not always had it
I know the cause of it
I know that I do not need to turn to medication to deal with it
I know ways of coping with it
I am trying to overcome it
I'm sure you have all heard people ask if you look at the glass half empty or half full.
Have you ever had anyone ask you what the weight of the glass is?
....Strange question, right?
Well here is a new way of looking at things.
I want to share with you something that I recently read by an unknown author.
I have taken the words and changed them a bit but this is what I got from it:
-----> The Weight of the Glass <-----
The weight of the glass does not matter. It is how long you hold it that does. If you are holding it temporarily it is not a problem. The weight of the glass will not bother you. If you hold it for a few hours it starts to give you an aches and pains. If you hold it for a day you will feel numb. The longer you hold the glass, the heavier it becomes.... even though the actual weight does not change.
Now imagine that the stresses and worries in your life are the weight of the glass.
If you hold onto it for a few minutes - nothing happens
If you hold onto it for a few hours - they begin to hurt and bother you
If you hold onto it for a day - you will feel like you are incapable of doing anything
You let the stress and worries overcome you by continuously thinking of them
The longer you hold onto things, the heavier they become
It is important to let go of your stresses as early as you can
