Not everyone has a Drama Queen like this in their life (and, thankfully, I no longer do, either!), but many of us know people who play a role in their own stress. In fact, I would estimate that most of us play a part in our own stress in one way or another. Either by using unhealthy coping strategies or cognitive distortions, or by being an adrenaline addict, we can exacerbate our own stress levels without even realizing it.
If you suspect that this may be the case with you, fear not! I have resources for you below. I encourage you to read up and then pay close attention to your own thoughts and actions afterward, and see if you notice yourself inadvertently adding to your own stress levels.
