Stress & Conflict – What’s the connection?  The voice of fear.stress and conflict

In either case we are listening to the voice of fear tell us about some inadequacy we believe is a part of our being.

Let me use an example from my own life to illustrate what I’m talking about.

When I first began in the work force, many years ago, one of the jobs I had was that of a receptionist.  I was always stressed out and in turn we many conflicts within myself and with others, unfortunately.  What I learned many years later was that the reason I was stressed is because I was trying to perform responsibilities that went totally against my personality preference.  In other words, I was trying to be an extrovert.  The job of a receptionist with all if its interruptions and being the voice of hospitality is very difficult for an extreme introvert – which I am.  The responsibilities drained all of my energy during the day and when I went home in the evening I had no energy left for family and this created conflict.

I listened to the voice of fear in taking the job.  You see, I was fearful no one else would hire me and so I took the job.  After all it was a pay check.

Listening to the voice of fear in any situation will bring about stress and conflict at some point.  Take a look inside – How are you listening to the voice of fear?

Try this exercise:

  1. Sit in a quiet place with a pencil and paper.
  2. Make a list of all the things that you fear.
  3. Imagine the world these fears create.
  4. Make a second list next to the first – change each fear to a positive affirmation
  5. Imagine the world these affirmations create.

Which world do you want to live in?

Choose the world of love – You’re Worth It!
