Talking about a problem incessantly doesn’t lead to a solution.
Psychiatrists and psychologists know that even years of counseling may not lead a person to get beyond what bothers or gnaws at them.
Don’t waste time or energy on something that will bring you more pain.
Take the effort that is being poured into continued frustration and turn it into something that will bring you gain.
Do you have a dysfunctional family that consumes your efforts to love and help them? Redirect that negative energy to something that is more rewarding – teaching, volunteering, mentoring others.
Your employer is always cutting you out of meetings and the planning chain to your endless frustration? Take the skill that they are not using and redeploy it to a startup, a part-time venture or a charitable cause.
The one thing that all humans have is energy and the ability to focus that energy to things that make us happy and successful is absolutely the way around a nagging problem that hounds you.
