Frustration seems like such an impotent emotion: you’re too spun up to continue effectively, and you’re too on edge to just rest and wait.
Left unchecked frustration can lead to stupid mistakes and embarrassment. Even more, frustration left unchecked can lead you right to your favorite unhealthy coping behavior. And frustration, in general, is just not a place abundant people tend to hang out. By “abundant people,” I mean people who are genuinely enjoying life.
Here’s the good news. You can make an intention to experience less frustration in your life. You can strategize how to do that and what you will do differently next time you’re frustrated. What are you going to do differently? I have some ideas that I share in this episode.
