How to get stress relief and better health ? This desire is often misunderstood and can
create more stress in your life. Harry wanted stress relief but he had difficulty understanding the frustration he was experiencing.

Let me explain

Harry was financially independent and could afford to give his partner whatever she wanted. Harry got stress relief from giving to his partner and seeing the joy on her face. Harry however got nothing in return although he was very generous.

This really infuriated Harry because the more he gave, the more his partner demanded. Harry felt guilty and gave more and more. So instead of having better health, Harry became more and more stressed.

Harry never thought of giving anything to himself because he believed that he did not need to receive because he had it all. What this means is that Harry never received anything from anybody unconditionally. He was taught that those who give unconditionally had to have a hidden agenda.

One day Harry bought some stamps at the post office. The ATM machine was broken and Harry was short by $1.67. A young lady in the line paid the $1.67 to make up the difference.

Harry reluctantly accepted with a smile on his face and admitted that this was the first
time in over 60 years that he had ever received anything from anybody (especially a total
stranger).

So what is the moral of the story?

It’s OK to give to others but you must first notice how to give to yourself. When you experience the feeling of giving to yourself you may become aware of the sweet sound of the feeling relaxation and stress relief.
