I became used to living with a very high degree of stress over my life; much of it unwarranted and needless and related to keeping my identity a secret. I am working on minimizing as much of it as possible from my life because I want to profit from a state of internal peace.
This is a very hard thing to come by as most of us live a little in the past and a lot in the future envisioning drastic things that likely won't transpire. Eliminating that wasted energy can only help us and I am preaching to myself as well as I write this. Nothing good can come of that negativity other than needless suffering.
There is of course good stress which motivates us to excel but unfortunately many live with far too much of the other kind.
