The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.
Job stress is not an ideal name for the phenomenon. We get
stressed everywhere. The key is whether we can release the
stress, winding up in a state of ease. It has been popular to
blame jobstress on outside forces/ people, but if we cannot
find ease, then we have a problem. Not everyone gets
stuck-in-stress in dealing with my "impossible boss." Perhaps it
is my growth opportunity to find a way not to get upset by that
boss in the first place.
Because women and men favor different sides of the brain, it is not desirable that equal numbers of each sex be in most job categories. Equal opportunity, however, is HIGHLY desirable.|
People get stuck in workstress for a variety of
reasons: (1)Many have problems with authority figures.
(2)The work is no longer interesting to them. (3)They
fear loss of a good health plan or high pay. (4)They have
to deal too closely with toxic situations (often requiring
dishonesty or lack of integrity) or toxic people.
The key to handling all these stressors is fear. If fear
responses can be changed, then the stress will ease and right
action will be taken. If you are severely stressed in your job,
please find yourself some therapy. Treatment for jobstress and related issues is
most often brief.
|Anger is ALWAYS beased upon unfulfilled expectations; fully let go of the expecting, and your anger will be no more.
