When you are stressed you will often take direct action to fix, remove or minimise the source of your stress. This can involve formulating a step based plan to directly deal with the source of the stress, however after the initial shock of an event has warn of you will take time to come up with action strategies and think about what steps you will need to take to best handle your problems. In dealing with a stressful situation you sometimes rely on the love and support of your social network, including both friends and family.
You may seek moral support, sympathy and understanding. You will never use alcohol or drugs as a means of escaping stress. You prefer to face up to situations uninhibited by mind altering substances. You have a good ability to see the upside of a negative event or situation. This allows you to understand and internalise the problem and grow as a person, possibly allowing you to prevent or overcome the same problem in the future.
