Frustration

Frustration . . . we’ve all felt it, whether it has to do with something at work, what we do well, what we don’t do well, what clothes look good on us or what we’d love to look good in, what we eat or would love to eat, whether our kids are doing their chores or homework, whether they’re eating right and making the “right” friends, whether our hours are too long, too shortImage, or our pay is insufficient for our needs.  We’ve all been there.  The big question is what can we do about it.

  • Stop.  Think about what it is that’s frustrating you.  Is it you?  Is it the clothes? Shoes? Food? Your spouse? Boss? Children? Hours? Paycheck?
  • What exactly about the situation is getting to you?
  • Is there anything you can do about it?
  • If so, write down your options.
  • Go over each possibility on your own, and even better with someone you trust.
  • Take the time you need to think about which option to choose.
  • If you need advice, don’t be afraid to ask for it.

Humans weren’t meant to be alone.  The best thing we can do for one another is be there for each other.  After all, isn’t that what life is all about?
