Stress is not something to cure. What needs to be cured is your habitual self-exposure to surroundings, environments, and circumstances you frankly do not prefer to experience. Stress is nature's way of guiding you to a better life. Forget trying to control your stress and sustain the discomfort; instead act, and start making changes to the way you live your life.
I’m falling fast. I look down. I gasp as I recognize Dali’s ‘Christ of St John of the Cross’ from rainy Sunday mornings in Kelvingrove Art Galleries. I’m looking down at dark hair, hands nailed to the cross, body slumped forward almost wrenching arms from their sockets as he rises above the world. He looks up at me. It’s not Christ’s eyes that bore into mine, it’s Connor’s.
