What’s Your Choice: Stress Free Life or Stressful Life?

 “Give yourself a break.
You think you need to do well in every aspect of life, you think you need to do everything you can to fit in this society, and you work hard for it, you stress over it too much.
Give yourself a break.
Accept the fact that you’re human too, and you cannot be perfect in every way. Accept your flaws, embrace them. Accept that you are lonely and average and not like everyone else you see around you because you aren’t. Accept it, inhale it, feel like in your bones.
Give yourself a break.
For a moment, try not to do anything else. Just go with the flow. Live every day without stressing about it, don’t care about how you look, don’t worry about the things you should be doing that you aren’t. Breathe in your surroundings, spend time with your family and surround yourself with people. Don’t judge yourself, don’t worry about eating unhealthily, watch movies and read books and be present in the moment. Take your time. Don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s okay to be the way you are.”
