On Frustration

It can be surprising to learn that frustration, which often leads to anger, can be easily dispelled.  Frustration consists of two parts: first, a perception of how the world IS; and second, a belief that it SHOULD BE otherwise.  Sometimes you can change your perception, and sometimes you can change the world — but you can always change your beliefs.  When you let go of the belief that it the world should ‘be otherwise’, should ‘already have changed’, then you can perceive it more clearly, with sympathy and love.  Suddenly you perceive new avenues for change, and your feeling of frustration melts away like the morning mists before the sun.
