It's hard to think about the potential that the future holds when the present is occupying so much of your time. Even though it currently feels like your big class presentation will be the most important day of your life, it won't be. The world has a lot more in store for you, so stop stressing out so much over your problems. Here are a few things that are causing you unneeded stress that won't even matter a year from today:
1. Your Grades
Yes, your grades are important. However, a year from now you won't still be thinking about that one big test that you're studying for like crazy now. Even though you're stressing over getting a good grade today, you won't have to stress over it in the future, because it'll already be done. As long as you do it right the first time around, there's no need to worry.
2. Your Recent Splurge
If you spent more money than you should've on a night out, you're going to be stressing about it for a bit. Now you have to figure out how you're going to make up for that lost cash. However, in a year you won't even remember that you struggled to pay for that designer pocketbook. Of course, you'll still have the pocketbook, so it's a winning situation.
3. Your TV Shows
To some, this will sound silly. To others, it's a lifestyle. If you're super obsessed with a certain television show, it can feel like torture to have to wait until next week for a new episode. However, you can handle it. Your shows are supposed to be a stress relief, not a stress causer.
4. Your Friend Drama
A year from now, you and your friends will either get over your issues or you'll stop being friends. Either way, it'll reduce your stress by a lot. You don't want to be surrounded by people who drive you insane, so you're better off resolving the issue.
5. Your Crush
The situation with your crush is the same as with your friends. You'll either be with him by this time next year, or you'll be over him. Of course, you should keep your thoughts about him positive. Even if he has a girlfriend right now, they might be broken up by next year. Don't try to make that happen. Just sit back and watch.
6. Your Decisions
You might be faced with a huge decision right now that you can't make. Maybe you're trying to pick a university to go to. Maybe you're trying to find a new place to work. No matter what your decision is, by next year you will have made it already. It might end up being the best thing you ever did, or it could be the worst, but either way you'll know by next year.
7. Your Bad Day
Today feels like an important day, because you're currently living through it. However, all of the bad things that happened today aren't going to be important a year from now. You probably won't even remember anything about this day in particular a year from now. That's why you need to relax and stop stressing out so much.
If little things have been bothering you, try to remember that they aren't worth your attention. What have you been stressing about lately?
