Kim Ades asks, “Are you going to use stress and adversity as an excuse for your misery?” Sometimes bad things happen, and people in our lives do not behave the way we would like, giving us a good reason to feel stress and adversity. However, Kim says every “good reason” is just an excuse to tune in to what’s bad in the world, which depletes our life experience. Stress is very often induced by how we react to the reality around us. Events are events, and the meaning we assign to those events will determine whether or not we feel stressed.
