My Stress Style: You’re The Soother. When trouble strikes, you somehow seem to avoid being hit. Those around you may encounter crises, of course — which is when you launch into action. You’re best at helping others ease their stress, offering a kind word or a well-timed “everything’s going to be okay.” You’re a walking affirmation!
Of course, wearing a smile all the time can be exhausting. Even you have to admit that we’re all only human, and stress happens to the best of us — including you. When you find yourself under stress, you may have to fight the tendency to shut off the phone, crawl under the blankets, and hide from the world. But it’s worth it to show your true feelings, even when they’re less than upbeat. Let the people you’ve nurtured in the past help you out in your time of need. You deserve the attention. And tomorrow is another day! So take it easy.
