Got Frustration?


Can I be honest with you?  I’ve been frustrated lately.  I’m frustrated professionally and personally.

Webster’s Dictionary defines frustration as

: a feeling of anger or annoyance caused by being unable to do something : the state of being frustrated

: something that causes feelings of anger and annoyance : something that frustrates someone

: the act of preventing the success of something : the act of frustrating something

Yup! That’s me, check, check and check.

Professionally, I’m frustrated because I’ve been sowing a lot of seeds and I’m not seeing any of them come to fruition. I’m not getting weary in well doing. But, I am feeling annoyed because I thought that surely by now I would see some growth.  I mean, certainly, when you do the right thing, at the right time, you get the right results.  Isn’t that how its supposed to happen?  So, what’s going on?  What’s the problem?

Personally, I’m frustrated because there are certain things that I want for myself that aren’t coming to pass. It feels like I continue having the same conversations, with the same people, making the same promises only for them to be broken.  Relationships that once uplifted and motivated me are beginning to drain and annoy me.

So, what do you do? When you’re annoyed, angry, disappointed and nothing seems to be working out the way you want it to when you know you’re doing everything that you know to do.  What do you when the very people that should be working with you continue to work against you?  How do you keep going when sometimes you just want to give up and throw in the towel?

You acknowledge your feelings, accept the situation and realize that this too shall pass.  You hold on and keep doing the right thing.  So, you will reap the reward…in due season. 

It may not be in your time.  But, it will be right on time.  And eventually, you will understand that the delay was not a denial.

Like so many other things in life, it’s easy to say but so much harder to do.  But, if you’re anything like me, you’ve come too far to give up now.  So, stick in there and keep living abundantly!
