Journal Prompt # 4 - Resolving Frustration

Updated: Oct 9, 2019

When we cannot resolve the impatience about not getting we want, our impatience turns into frustration. When our goals do not materialize, or when we do not get our physical, financial or emotional needs met, our frustration grows. We feel frustrated when something seems to block our progress. Frustration arises when something seems to be blocking our goals and dreams. And, the bigger our dreams and goals, the greater the disparity and frustration can become. When we do not recognize our deeper emotional needs, we tend to put a great deal of effort towards emotionally-driven dreams and goals, yet the returns and results are not equal to our efforts. Our frustration creates a "forcing current" that often pushes what we want even further away. Often our "compensatory" dreams and goals are underpinned by unexamined emotional needs, that when met, would allow our true dreams to flow effortlessly towards us. It takes great practice to desire something to come into our lives, and also accept the way things are right now at the same time.

Journal Exercise

Frustration is clear sign that you have discordant internal programming not matching with your goals and plans, or you are trying to force things to happen in your life in order to feel better emotionally. 1. List all the things you are frustrated in with in your life right now. 2. Beside each frustration, identify the emotional need that is underpinning your frustration.

Looking forward to discussing this with you in your session.

With much care,
