I believe the answer to this question is simply that we overthink. We somehow get to the point where we believe a set of thoughts about our situation that causes a reaction in our bodies.
If we break down the thoughts that we are having when we are stressed, I think they come down to the point that we think we won’t be loved.
We may be thinking “I can’t do this”, “I don’t have enough time”, “I’m going to let someone down”, but ultimately, I believe that we equate this to people, or someone is going to think less of me and that “I am not going to be loved”
You may be questioning this now and thinking that I have jumped to a conclusion that isn’t true.
As an experiment, question the thoughts that you are having around being stressed.
