No need for frustration
Frustration is a painful, debilitating feeling that can often cause you to do things you’ll regret. So choose to quickly let it go.
Frustration, as automatic and overpowering as it may seem, is a choice. And you can always make a different choice.
The habit of reacting in frustration is just that, a habit. Like any other habit you’ve developed, you can get rid of it when you choose.
Yes, life regularly presents you with difficult dilemmas for which frustration is a perfectly understandable reaction. Other than grabbing your attention, however, your frustration never does accomplish much.
So once you’re aware of the frustrating situation, make the choice to find a more useful, effective response. Step back from the desire for instant drama, and work on creating some long-term positive results.
Channel the high-powered energy of frustration into intentional, focused, positive action. Give yourself the option to act effectively and appropriately, and you’ll find you have no need for frustration.
