Stress is a lot to handle. Sometimes we are stresses because we can't handle the load thats on our plate. Put the most important things first and let the rest fall where they may.
A lot of people have trouble dealing with stress. Some are more prone to chronic stress than others. The effects are numerous on the body and mind. It makes emotions hard to manage and thoughts difficult to control. Perhaps you can handle light stress, but major problems can be unbearable to most. It may just be that you haven't had the time to see yourself come through the other side enough to build confidence that you can handle stressful situations. Our perception of ourselves has a major impact on what we go through and how we handle a situation. Building confidence and self-esteem slowly is a process that takes some time. Yet, with more confidence, you'll find that you are able to adapt to things easier, and perhaps stressful situations will be easier to handle later on.
Stress is a natural response to a situation that you don't want to be in. It is natural that we find it difficult to handle.
I think you can handle it but you just aren't sure how to yet! My advice is to take a deep breath and take small steps at a time to overcome it!
You may not be able to handle stressful situations because they are too much for you to handle all at once. Maybe try to break up the problem and solve little parts, to manage it easier.
