Life Is – Frustrating

As much as I love the Princess Bride, I could never agree with Westley that “life is pain.” Is there pain? Yes. However, if you are doing it right, the good outweighs the bad. However, frustration? That is completely and thoroughly entrenched into everything we do in our lives. From just having to get to work to things actually happening at work, it’s as if everything we do is designed to cause nothing but frustration.

Which is completely draining. You can bang your head against the brick wall only so many times before you feel like you’ve lost all of the brain cells you had. And you have to accept that some things can’t be changed, even if you are absolutely sure they should be changed, for the good of everything.

It’s a lesson I know, but I can’t follow. Sad as that is, I know there are things I should just accept, but I can’t do it. I can’t just idly sit back and accept some of the things presented to me at work. It is detrimental to everyone involved and I feel like it’s my duty – our duty, everyone at work – to try and make things different. Because, if you don’t try, obviously, nothing will change.

But, it makes me tired. Along with other things occurring at work, I’ve been feeling completely beaten down. I’m working on figuring out how to have it just roll off my back and to march on.

Maybe this is the answer. It used to be, this blog of mine. Maybe this is the answer.

    I can honestly say that I understand where you are coming from. Lately my Job has taken me down the same road. I have my good days and my bad days. I think of it like PTSD ( not intending to offend any Veterans it’s just the closest thing I can relate it too without knowing of a similar name for it ) in as much as I can be fine one day and almost out of control with anxiety the next.

    Where I used to be able to let things roll off my back now I find myself going from Zero to Raging in hardly any time at all. It disappoints me on many levels and I find myself casting about randomly for things to distract me from the stress it causes. Sometimes it works and most of the time.. not so much. Let me know if you find a solution!

    That is pretty much exactly how I feel. Sometimes, I feel like a bystander, watching myself go absolutely off the wall and I’m just – “Whoa. I don’t even know how to stop that now that it’s started.”
    It’s very tough.

    Also – HI! Good to see you. (=
