Stress has been my constant companion lately. I can't seem to shake it.

In the midst of my stress I've made some decisions that I've regretted. I've snapped at people that did not deserve my harsh words, and I've taken my frustrations out on those who had nothing to do with the source of my frustrations. I've been selfish, thinking the world should revolve around me and my problems.

Some would say that stress does that to people. That people under stress have the right to focus on themselves, to be put others on the back burner until the stress decreases.

The more I think about that line of thought, the less I agree. I want to be someone who treats others well, despite the pressure I'm facing. Is that unrealistic?

Is it possible to treat others well while under stress?
