Frustration is a big problem. When life seems clueless, when you don’t know how do deal with situations in life, when you have no solution for the issues popping up, you feel frustrated. Frustration is a negative feeling. It is a feeling of incapability. It is a feeling of exhaustion. It is a feeling of lack of motivation and enthusiasm to keep doing the thing that pulls your energy.
Open Your Mind
For most of us, the awareness of what makes us frustrated is missing. We don’t know what is sucking our energy and how we can experience calmness and bliss even in the state of frustration. While you can be frustrated about a thousand things and there is no single solution to problems, the starting point of it all starts from over-expectation.
A person who is frustrated about his child’s education is over-expecting his child’s abilities. A person frustrated about his business is over-expecting his methods to perform well. And most of the time, when we are frustrated, we are not opening our minds and thinking new. We are stuck with old methods and routines that keep giving us same results.
Accepting the Moment
But frustration could be a lot of things. It is expecting to behave in a specific way, having a quiet and calm home, being more disciplined, world leaders taking over our everyday lives, traffic to be better. We are expecting a lot of things from a lot of situations and people. When it doesn’t go as planned, we face frustration. The pattern creates a loop.
One of the easiest ways to tackle frustration is creating a new pattern of your lifestyle. You might consider one like this: “This (person/situation) isn’t what I want. I wonder if I can open up to it and be curious about it? I wonder if there’s a way to be grateful for this moment I’ve been given? I wonder if I can find a way to love this moment, in all its entirety.”
Become a Witness
It all starts with being mindful and aware of what is happening in your mind and body. Just be cognizant of the moment when you are frustrated. Create this awareness in your life. Learn to be aware. Become a witness to your thoughts and movements. This simple habit of witnessing will change your life in many ways. Witness your frustration. Don’t be the part of your frustration. Witness it.
