Yesterday I read this article in Chatelaine and I realized that I am addicted to stress.
When I’m not busy or don’t have anything to plan or brood over I feel useless, lazy, and a little depressed. I love the feeling of being stressed because it ensures that I get things done, that I get them done efficiently, and that I am not wasting away my life. Am I crazy? Un poco nuts perhaps? Or just addicted to being anxious?
I feel alive when I’m stressed out, like I have some kind of purpose. It’s when everything is going “perfectly” and I don’t have anything to worry about or do that I feel lazy and like my life isn’t going anywhere. Does anyone agree with me out there?
I’m not saying that being addicted to stress is a good thing, or a healthy thing for that matter but if you can control your stress I don’t see the harm in it.
If fear can be used to motivate, why can’t stress?
Hope you have a good kind of stressful day!
