It doesn’t have to be a stressful encounter.
How many of you count on your friends to be supportive when you’re feeling anxious or stressed? Are you embarrassed to admit you’re not always “on top” of things? Me, too.
It’s hard sometimes to share your disappointment, frustration, and self-pity with almost anyone. And when I do talk about it, I’m always relieved when the other person says, “That happens to me too.”
The truth of the matter is most of us experience anxiety at one time or another, which is why learning how to deal with anxiety-inducing situations between partners, family, friends, and colleagues is an important life skill.
