Don’t let the stress, strife and struggle break you apart. Everyone is doing everything they can to deal with the current situation. It’s not their fault, it’s not your fault so don’t keep trying to place blame where it doesn’t belong.
You’re not the only one struggling and worrying about the situation at hand. Stop acting like you are. We all handle stress and anxiety in different ways. How you handle things are especially different between a man and a woman. We don’t look at the same things in the same way, so we don’t worry in the same way either.
Simply because you can’t understand their approach to the situation doesn’t mean they’re not concerned and filled with anxiety too. The enemy isn’t the person you’re looking at, it’s the person you see in your own reflection. Focus on what you can do to relieve the stress within. Maybe it’s meditation, maybe it’s cleaning or mowing the yard. Maybe it’s pounding the street or researching solutions. What ever it is, it’s better to turn you anger into action and do something with it.
Sometimes anger can be a good thing. Constructive anger can motivate you, it can empower your energy to pull yourself out of the hole you’re in. Use it for your benefit, instead of simply letting it out in one big outburst toward those around you who don’t deserve it in the first place.
