And it’s MASSIVELY FRUSTRATING!!!!
When my car isn’t working, it’s frustrating but I can usually figure out a work around – uber, catching a ride wth a friend or rescheduling an appointment. But sometimes there’s no work around & whatever isn’t working can turn into a meltdown crisis.
I just experienced this with s Skype interview I was scheduled to do & im still in the residual frustration fumes being mad at skype, etc.
What should we do in these moments of intense frustration? The things I want to do (hit something, yell, kick a chair, not write my blog) these things aren’t beneficial. So here are some ideas that might be more constructive for you when you have a frustrating meltdown:
- Take a deep breath – this physical action helps settle my mental disarray
- Perspective alignment – pray & ask for the Holy Spirit to help you to have a divine alignment on your perspective
- Use a tourniquet – don’t allow the bleeding from the frustration to spill over into other areas of your life
- Think in terms of practice – the next time will be better 🙂
