I honestly voice my frustrations

I honestly voice my frustrations

My opinions are valid, so I am honest about my feelings. I find constructive ways to communicate with the people in my life.

Everyone has frustrations. Annoyance and anger are natural human emotions. The best way to rid myself of these feelings is to acknowledge that they exist and to move forward.

Since I am in touch with my feelings, I know when I become angry or frustrated. As a calm and rational adult, I realize I must voice my frustrations in order to rid myself of them. Honestly voicing my frustrations is the best way for me to move past them.

I think of each frustration as a pesky fly. They are nothing more than small annoyances.

If each frustration I have is a fly, I imagine what would happen if all of those flies were to become trapped in a bottle. Picturing the chaos as these flies frantically search for an escape reminds me that I have a choice.

Instead of trapping the flies in a bottle, I can choose to release them. By taking the lid off of the bottle, I allow each fly to escape. All of the negative energy is gone, and the bottle becomes a calm space.

By comparing my frustrations to flies in a bottle, I can see the importance of releasing my frustrations. I imagine each frustration soaring away from me, and I am calmed by the image.

I refuse to let frustrations fester in my life so I take healthy steps toward letting go of petty annoyances. Sharing frustrations with others is therapeutic. I am relieved that I have the choice to honestly voice my frustrations and move forward.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1.    What frustrations have I experienced recently?
2.    Have I allowed frustrations to fester inside of me?
3.    What would happen if I were to “take the lid off of the bottle” and let these frustrations escape?

I can safely communicate my feelings with others

When I keep the focus on myself I can express my feelings without fear.

I am the only one who fully understands what I feel and the better I can express these feelings the better I will be understood. I express my feelings in a healthy way and this creates a safe platform for me. I let others know what my feelings are regardless of what they may be.

By focusing on my own feelings and using "I" statements to express them I am communicating in a safe and healthy manner. I avoid blaming statements and choose instead to relate to how a situation makes me feel.

When someone does something nice for me and makes me feel special I communicate these feelings with that person.

Likewise, if I am upset by a situation I choose to communicate these feelings constructively. I explain what I am feeling and why I am feeling this way. I share only my feelings and how certain words or actions have made me feel. This is a healthy way of communicating and therefore is safe. I share my healthy attitudes with others when I communicate in this way.

Today, I choose to share my feelings even if I feel a little uncomfortable doing so. I will remember to use "I" statements that simply relay how I feel. I will share this safe platform for communication to others who also wish to communicate their feelings with me.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    Have I bottled up feelings because I was afraid to share them?
2.    Do I use “I” statements when communicating?
3.    Do I extend this safety to others who communicate their feelings with me?
 

Mind quotes

My life is an indivisible whole, and all my attitudes run into one another. And they all have their rise in my insatiable love for mankind.

Mohandas K. Gandhi
