Stress is one of the factors in life that can push us off balance. Sometimes we have no control over the stress in our life, such as the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, an illness or other external problems.
But often our stress is self-created through our inner critic. One of the many stresses of modern life is envy. Another is fear.
These two causes of stress are “self-made” because we are the ones who allow feelings of envy and fear into our life. This means the responsibility is on us to change these feelings and eliminate the causes of this stress without falling into the trap of inner criticism.
