Hello everyone! Today's question is, if I could change one thing about my life, what would it be? I think for me, the change would not be external but internal. Life is going to have ups and downs and if it didn't, I think it would be depressing. I have friends that can handle stress with so much resiliency. They do not internalize it. In fact, they are able to just acknowledge it and move on! These are my friends who made it through medical school without having a nervous breakdown, got their PhDs in chemistry, physics, etc. and still seem to have more free time than anyone else, continue to chase their dreams to be singers or songwriters without the fear or worry about what they will do when we are older and they have no "back up plan." These friends all sleep like rocks. 9 hours a night with no problem. Then there is me. I think my change would be that I would be "wired" more like the friends I look up to because they are high achievers like me but do not carry the stress with them and allow it to make them sick as I do. That is how they have managed to go even further beyond what I can currently do just because of my inability to handle stress as well as others. I think if I had that personality trait, even if nothing in my life changed externally, my entire perspective on my life thus far would be different. After all, it isn't really what is happening as much as it is how you perceive it that makes all the difference.
