We learn that, with time, we can overcome problems and deal with unhappy periods in our lives. We understand that if we manage our stressful periods, they tend to pass and we can be happy again. However too many life changes or everyday hassles can lead to feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. This state can threaten health, undermine relationships, compromise our work, and destroy our happiness.
