When you're living in a state of constant stress, pressure and overwhelm, it's easy to just go on auto-pilot and before you know it, life starts living you instead of the other way around. It gets harder and harder to put your best "self" forward. You may find yourself reacting from the pressure and disconnecting from the ones you love. With today's economy, you may be facing a major transition with work, family or life in general. The harder the transition, the more paralyzing it can seem.
