Frustration = Break

We all get frustrated at times, so we have to know when to reset so that defeat doesn’t cause us to react in a way that is not in alignment with who we are. It’s important to know when to put a thing on the shelf and walk away. Since frustration is an interrupter, we must let it play out before we carry on. Continuing to pursue while frustrated can cause us to do more harm than good even when that was not our intent. I’ve found that after stepping back, taking a breather, and then returning to finish what originally attempted to break me is much easier, doesn’t take up much time, and wasn’t that bad after all. Don’t give in to frustration and do or say something that you will later regret, take a break instead.
