Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry,

but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. And don’t stay angry.

Ephesians 4:26-27

As human beings, we are created to live in unity with each other. Each one of us is valuable and has a specific purpose to better us all. In representation of divine order, our bodies have been established as healthy eco-systems, and the control center, our brains, is wired for positive connections.

 

Anytime we feel unloved, rejected, incompetent, or disconnected from our reality, our nervous systems shut down or fire rapidly at an unsustainable pace inevitably damaging our nerve endings overtime.

 

This is violence at its core. I cannot problem solve, I feel disconnected, I do not understand, destroy destroy destroy. Frustration is a painful feeling of disconnect in many ways, shapes, and forms. It is important, because it reveals to us that which is harmful to our capacity to function well and experience joy. It should not, however, be reenacted. What is causing you frustration and how can you peacefully disengage from this trigger?
