Frustration: What to Do When It's Everywhere

Frustration It’s an irritating word and an even more irritating feeling. Especially when frustration seems to be there everywhere you turn. About 2 years ago, this is exactly where I was: Frustrated at absolutely everything in my life. From my kids and parenting, to my husband, to my work and blogging and every little thing in between. I was absolutely miserable and stressed to the max. So was my husband. We had no idea what to do or where to turn or how to even begin to sort out the many messes that had become our lives.

Feeling like a Failure

I’m sitting in a high school classroom as I begin to type this. Being that it is exam week, I’ve heard a lot about failing – especially as the students get up to leave after taking their exam. “I know I failed that,” “I’m just praying for a D!” Or worse yet, “Yep, I failed that, oh well.”   And I remember uttering these phrases myself amongst my peers after taking tests in high school. When anything was hard, or we felt uncertain, we were sure we failed. Rarely had we actually failed, even though we may not have done […]
