5 Ways to Avoid Drowning in Frustration


Never let frustrations and pettiness’s dictate your life, take back control of your life.


One of our greatest fears as humans is dying, especially by drowning.  Is it the fear of dying or is it the fear of dying by water?

One of the reasons why drowning may be a great fear is because of its overwhelming nature.

Drowning is a serious situation, but something that may be equally as scary is drowning in frustration.  There are many people drowning in frustrations.  You may not think this is a serious problem, but day by day our world is getting more complicated or overwhelming.  More and more frustrations are present because of the complexities of our world.

I don’t know your specific frustrations.  However, I do know that frustration stems from anger and disappointment.

Are you happy with where you are in life?  Are you satisfied with your job?  Are you content with the various relationships in your life?  Are you pleased with your financial situation?

You may not be where you would like to be in your life, but let me share 5 Ways To Avoid Drowning in Frustration.

1. Consult with the Creator


There are some things in this life we will never understand.  I don’t say that to discourage you from seeking understanding and purpose in your life.  Matter fact, because of our inability to comprehend some things we should consult with someone who does understand.  No one understands the world and everything within it better than the Creator of it.

2. Expect the Unexpected


It’s Murphy’s Law that states, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”  In other words, expect the unexpected.  Many times we have plans for our lives only to find out that those plans will change.  Instead of getting frustrated just know the unexpected is part of all our lives.  You will definitely avoid drowning in frustration when you can get to a point in your life where you can expect the unexpected.

3. Be Patient


How does patience help with avoiding drowning in frustration?  It may sound simple and easy, but it’s a challenge.  Take your time.  Stay calm and don’t get worked up over things that will improve in time.

4. Sharpen Your Perspective


A great way to avoid drowning in frustration is by being more insightful.  You will discover better fulfillment of your goals and plans because you will plan better.   Your preparation will be better and more detailed.

5. Take Ownership


Seek to hold yourself accountable, which will allow you to put your absolute best foot forward.  Blaming others usually leads to further frustrations because of the anger, bitterness, and disappointment we attempt to mask by blaming someone else.  The feelings of frustration are usually present because of an individual mistake or error.  The best way to avoid drowning in frustration is by taking ownership of those things within your control.
