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.
Choosing suggests rational thought.
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?
Emotion may be triggered by experience, but thought
Would determine how to respond.
Always. even when thought allows emotion to have its way.
