All stress is a response to experience

Spirit tells me that all stress is a response to experience, but

Experience itself does not necessarily create stress.

 

How we choose to respond to experiences that Life

Provides us with, and we seem to respond differently to

Similar situations at different times, determines how

Stressful each experience will be.

 

I have a problem with that explaination.

 

Yes.

 

Choosing suggests rational thought.

 

Yes.

 

But, how can we choose an emotional response?

 

Why would you choose an emotional response?

 

Surely an emotional response is a more immediate and

Natural expression of how I experience whatever situation.

Doesn’t emotion have to come before thought?

 

Yes.

 

Then?

 

Emotion may be triggered by experience, but thought

Would determine how to respond.

 

Always?

 

Always. even when thought allows emotion to have its way.
