Do you know what is the biggest cause of stress these days? Well, there are a lot of reasons for that but the biggest reason is constantly trying to prove something to someone.
Most people are not doing things, achieving milestones for their own satisfaction or growth, they are doing things to prove it to others.
Instagram has become a report card. Well, quite a judgment filled report card, right?
Judgment will lead to Extra Stress
If you are scared of the judgment, you’ll be living life on people’s terms. If you are scared of failure, you’ll be scared to try and excel at something new. And if you are scared of both, then welcome to another factor for your stress.
If you are winning things for your family, for your parents, for your friends or for your society, you are living a fake life.
Because your victory will be of no use if it makes everyone happy but yourself.
Leave Your Stress on God
We don’t know the pilot yet we sit on a plane.
Don’t know the captain, yet we sit on a ship.
And we don’t know the driver, yet we sit on a bus.
Similarly, why are you so stressed out, when you know that God is in control?
We can only do our share of hard work. After that, it’s our patience and our destiny that God has destined for us already.
Should we leave everything on God?
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Leaving everything on god doesn’t mean that you can escape the tough days, hard work or sad results. You’ll have to keep going on.
You’ll have to do your share of toil and be perseverant. Without rowing your own boat, how can you expect God to just help you cross the river?
It’s a mixture of your hard work+ patience+ destiny= God leading you to your desired path.
Do it for Yourself.
People will say what they want to say anyway. No matter if you are excelling in your career or flunking down, people will always have something to say, something to criticize.
You can never make others happy and find your happiness in them if you are not happy from the inside.
You’ll have to do things that make you happy. Not for your parents, not for your partner, not for your family, not for your friends and not for your society, but for yourself.
So, what makes you happy? No matter how big or small it is. If it makes you happy but doesn’t get you enough money, then start doing it as your side hustle with a shitty job to finance your life.
Then when you reach a certain point where you can make your side hustle as your only priority, quit that job and follow your passion full time.
There is nothing more satisfying than doing something you love. It will eventually work as a great stress buster instead of adding stress to your life.
So, just leave out that unnecessary stress, do your hard work, and leave everything on god!!
