Frustration is something every human being will encounter. Why do we get so frustrated at situations, family, friends and other loved ones?
The common denominator is preference.
PREF.ER.ENCE // a practical advantage given to one over others.
If we get rid of our preferences we will be happier. We have this phantom expectation of people and situations that are fairy tale. Everything will not go your way. The decisions a person make, may not be what you may have in mind, but, that’s their right.
I found myself getting really upset/mad/angry/stressed/frustrated today. I questioned myself. Why am I putting myself through this? Because I want this situation go another way, otherwise I wouldn’t be upset…duh. Well, I had to change my thinking. Saying Why Not? instead of Why?
It may as well happen, so I can laugh at it later. It’s not as bad as it my seem right now. It was a character defying moment. I realize you determine your mood, your attitude and your future. Don’t let your expectations of people, especially, take a toll on you, your health (mentally & physically), and your relationships.
I hope this blesses someone.
What do you do to calm yourself down after a moment of frustration?
