When life is overwhelming - break it down to manageble pieces!

So what do you have control over?
Sometimes it may seem like very little - your environment and the people that surround you are very difficult to have influence over. They all have their own agendas and not always are you really on their radar... sometimes things that are said and done, or not said and done are taken very personally when they dont have to be, they were never meant to be personal attacks but your perception of the situation made them seem so.
Often when you are overtired, overworked and stressed things just seem to escalate or balloon out of all proportion.
So what you can control is your response to your environment and to things that dont go according to your carefully set plans.
You may need to review your expectations?
Maybe you are just not being realistic?
Maybe you are being too serious?
Look closely at your perception of the world around you as it will colour every decision you make.
Things are not always as you percieve them to be - you are only seeing your version of reality which may be no one elses...consider this and then ask others what they are experiencing, get some feedback and break things down into manageble bits.
Work on changing things a small step at a time.
Ultimately the only thing you can change is yourself.
