Parenting a child can be hectic and anything that is hectic turns stressful after a point of time. Young parents with infants somehow manage to find their ways out since the child manages to wipe off your frowns better than anyone else in the world. But as everything changes, the situation changes as well. Your child starts to grow up and as they move towards their adolescence, they can add to your stress. If your work assignments, house chores, mortgages and the increasing prices of everything were not enough reasons to stress you out, your little child back home may not offer you the pleasure and peace that you once had.
Stress quotes may sound the most unrealistic way to deal with stress but they actually help. Millions of people try to get back to a favorite book that they had left midway. This is not only because they love the book but they also love the de-stressing effect the book has on them. A book may not be one that teaches you how to meditate but the mind’s involvement in the book offers it peace and serenity in some form or the other.
Stress among parents can be owing to their incompatibility with the children or the incompatibility in their own marital life. Carl Jung said that ‘Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children, than the unlived lives of the parents’. This quote can help you to realize that besides the life of your child, there is a life you have that has to be lived and not just spent. If you are not living your life you would always be stressed.
When a child is born and grows up, the process leaves you exhausted since you put in so much of yourself and your life into it. You have the right to burst out and break things and at times hate your situation. But whenever you get tired of all the havoc, remember this stress quote, ‘A child enters your home and for the next twenty years makes so much noise you can hardly stand it. The child departs, leaving the house so silent you think you are going mad’, by John Andrew Holmes.
There are times when you feel disgusted with what your child makes you to go through but you have to realize that rather than stressing yourself out you should look beyond the materialistic and obvious aspects of parenthood. ‘Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves’.
What good are stress quotes if they do not put light on the brighter side of things and take our mind of the stress itself? These stress quotes urge you to think beyond the obvious.
