Stress is part of the human condition. So why do some people handle stress better than others? It is true that we all encounter stress everyday, but what bothers one person may send another person spinning. How someone reacts to stress, particularly in relationships depends to a large part on whether we know how to take care of ourselves in a stressful situation. Taking care of ourselves both personally and interpersonally(with others) goes a long way when it comes to reducing stress. Some important factors include: Being able to set good boundaries, knowing what boundaries are, being able to ask for what we want and need from others, knowing what our limitations are, and having good communication skills. For example, are you able to say no to someone when you want to? Do you know how to set priorities? Can you disappoint someone if you need to? Do you know how to compromise? Can you state your preferences clearly? Taking care of ourselves is both about the personal standards and "rules" that we have chosen to live by, as well as how we operate within these when it comes to relationships with others.
