20 Quotes For When You Feel Stressed

Quotes For Stress — I’ve been going through it lately. The last few days have felt especially overwhelming. The stressors of work, combined with family, have all felt a little bit too much.

The thing about stress is that it’s not all bad. I think it’s a good thing to feel a healthy dose of it because it can motivate us, help us achieve our goals, and keep us away from dangerous situations. The problem with stress is not the actual stress at all, it’s our response to it, how we handle it.

And, if I’m being honest, I’ve been really sucking at the whole handling of it recently. The good news is I’m very much aware of the fact that I’ve been sucking at it. That, to me, is already a step in the right direction.
