When we practice loving ourselves we can come to understand that we do not have to jump out of a window every time a fire alarm is pulled. We can come to understand that we do not have to panic every time we feel stress. We can realize that the sun always comes up after a long night. Things always change. Stress always passes when we choose to let it go.
Stress can be very helpful in getting us moving toward our goals, but when we do not let it go – it can become a very dense and heavy emotion to carry around. It is okay to let it go. It is self-loving to let it go. Give yourself some practice the next time you feel stressed. Take action where you can and then let it go.
