Stress is always a bad thing, right?
I'm not so sure. Why? Because I used to try and avoid it completely, and when I did I was getting nowhere, fast!
I feared what anxiety had in store for me if I pushed myself, so I spent years of my life staying in my comfort zone (which wasn’t that comfortable!). I hid away from the world because I thought it was the easier thing to do – how wrong could I be?
I changed all that by looking at stress in a different way. I saw it as a sign that I was making progress, rather than seeing it as the negative thing that caused me so much unhappiness.
When I feel stress I know I’m heading in the right direction, which can only be good.
