When you feel you are overweight,
Unnecessarily you might have stress with other health problems.
I feel you can overcome this stress by coping in your pace,
Then you will stop worrying and start working,
The time will run away and you could not able to accomplish anything,
That will again become a stress motive.
You can overcome this stress by doing something that you like,
You tell your parents and then if you feel better or not,
It is your feeling and also you can put what you feel as a secret,
From anyone in the society.
Don’t think about what society says but,
Think about what you want.
Just listen to your heart and mind,
Say to yourself that everything will be fine.
Stress will never help you do anything,
Motivation will help you do accomplish anything in life.
This is my message
