It is well accepted that negative thoughts and anxiety can make us ill. Stress — the belief that we are at risk — triggers physiological pathways such as the “fight-or-flight” response, mediated by the sympathetic nervous system. These have evolved to protect us from danger, but if switched on long-term they increase the risk of conditions such as diabetes and dementia. -- Jo Marchant #PlaceboEffect
Some people never learn how to fight, instead choosing to trudge along in a disappointment and complacency; which means they never truly learn to appreciate the bliss or paradise that comes with the renewal of making up. Fight and make up, instead of give up.
