The Duck syndrome has got nothing to with ducks, or any webbed birds. Duck syndrome referred as the Stanford duck syndrome or ugly duckling syndrome, is not formally recognized as a mental illness but refers to a phenomenon that has primarily been described in college students. A duck swims through the water in mere peace and tranquillity but underneath the water surface, it has to peddle harder to cover a minimal distance in a water body.
Likewise, we impersonate this bird by feigning to be calm and stress-free whereas the underlying truth is that we are burdened with our work, responsibilities, relationships and even future. We never address our problems, neither to others nor to God. Building up the stress within ourselves will ultimately throw us into depressive states or some anxiety disorders.
Bible says in John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. God’s peace is the ultimate solution to the bounding stress. We will never get peace elsewhere, however, our efforts are to distract our mind, the answer lies in not temporary relief but a permanent way out to alleviate stress. You can pretend to men but you can never hide from God.
