053 – When You’re Feeling Frustrated at School, at Home, or with Yourself (A Fresh Perspective for Teachers)
Some days I roll out of bed, get dressed, and feel like a million bucks.
Other days, I curse my skinny jeans for being too skinny. 👖
And I question whether it was them or me that changed size since the last load of laundry. 🤷♀️
Ever feel this way?
Whether we’re frustrated with something going on at school, something at home, or something about ourselves…
Our culture has a tendency to look at frustration as a negative thing.
After all, frustration doesn’t feel good! 😖
So most of us try to rush our way out of frustration as fast as we can.
We run to the Oreos.
We binge the Netflix.
We vent to whoever will listen.
Bottom Line: We seek COMFORT.
But then the frustration rears its ugly head again.
So we keep trying to run away from it.
Or we try to numb ourselves from the awful feeling. 🍦📺🍷
But what if there’s more to it?
What if we’re missing something really good hidden underneath the frustration?
What if we’re actually creating our own vicious spin cycles when we try to push it away?
What if there’s a better way to get through the frustration faster?
…And actually come out on the other side of it feeling like we’ve finally conquered it?
(Rather than feeling like the frustration itself has some sort of power over us.)
Let’s look at frustrations with fresh eyes.
And uncover the truth behind what’s really going on.
