This is the sad truth behind humanity as a whole, we don’t usually know how to deal with stress or what even causes it in the first place. For example, did you know that stress used to be like a sort of spider sense for us, allowing us to foresee dangerous situations approaching us, telling us that we need to either fight it out or

Regardless of the past though, we no longer require stress as a tool in order to fight it out for our survival.
Nowadays we are taught that our survivability is already conferred to us, and instead we should concentrate on our passions and hobbies. Although this sounds good at first, this has caused us to become fragile, unwilling to be able to deal with emotions such as stress and fear.
