It’s intangible and yet it persists like an irritating pimple which seemingly, like a demented, sadistic man, decides to torment you by growing at the middle of your back where you can’t reach it.
It taunts and it leaves you drained; it feeds on all your negative thoughts, bitter feelings and rancid emotions, and then it engulfs you and possesses you so it can transfer itself like a deadly virus to all those in close proximity of your being.
Frustration will make you doubt yourself. It will make you reevaluate the choices you made that brought you to your current state, and it brings upon you its most potent weapon: regret. And when regret takes hold of you, then either you shake it off, or you dwell on it, clothing yourself in its coldness, isolating yourself until you realize you’ve fallen into depression... There is a reason why being alone is lonely.
However, there are ways to combat frustration. Like all enemies, it has its own weaknesses. And your secret strength, something that you always knew but rarely occurred to you, is that you have a choice: either to give in to it or give it up and move on. And the latter is precisely what you should do: move on, shake things up… live life. Never give in to frustration and convert the negative to positive energy, positive feelings such as…
Love is such a powerful defense. Surrounding yourself with your loved ones is like hiding from a torrent of flaming arrows under a roof made out of shields held upright by warriors you trust.
Knowing that somebody is there for you is quite comforting
Knowing that you’re not alone can make you feel like you can conquer the world.
Loving and knowing that you’re loved can make a big difference.
And hopefully, when you let go of your regrets and when the ranting stops, you realize that love is everything you wanted, everything you needed, and more.
