Does it ever seem like some things in life are just harder than they should be, whether they're jobs, relationships, groups we belong to, interactions that we have, etc.? I wonder why they have to be this way, and should this indicate to us that something needs to change in our lives when it feels like things are harder than they should be. As someone who studies stress and its impacts on society, I know that individuals who are stressed at times report that things seem harder. But, should there be a point when we determine 'hey, this is too hard too often and maybe it shouldn't be this way'. Wouldn't it be helpful if we could say: if you've had something in your life feel like it is harder than it should be 12 out of the past 15 days, then it is time to 'cut bait'/move on/make changes/etc.? Unfortunately life is never this easy and there are no magic formulas to tell us when we need to make a turning point in our lives. Just some musings on a busy Sunday afternoon . . .
