Have you ever wondered why you get frustrated? Of course, there are
many different situations which lead to frustration.
But why frustration? Why do we get frustrated? Why do we even have
that emotion in our repertoire? It is certainly not pleasant. So what
is the point of frustration?
Frustration focuses us. No matter what triggers the frustration, the
purpose for frustration to stimulate positive action. If we had no
capacity for frustration, we would have to constantly endure those
negative factors. But frustration gives us a way out.
Frustration comes when the reality of life does not match our vision.
There are, basically, two ways to end frustration -- either by giving
up the vision or by making it a reality. Giving up is only a short
term solution, because our true vision does not easily give up.
In your frustration, you can see your vision. And in your frustration,
is the energy to attain that vision. Feel the frustration. Be thankful
for it. Learn what it can teach you about yourself. And let it spur
you into positive, life-changing action.
