Yesterday, during my daily commute, a car was tailgating me and honking for apparently no reasons. I was so stressed and irritated by this!
After a few minutes, when I got a chance, I changed the lane and allowed this car to pass.
And then I saw that it was my best friend! I was laughing!
Why suddenly all my stress vanished?
Because my friend is inside my boundary of self. Strangers are not.
But what if we bring them inside? Wouldn't it help us to eliminate a lot of stress from our lives?
The answer is yes, if and only if it's reciprocal.
