Piece #63 - REAL Frustration!

This topic is a great combination of several previous posting I have written, everything from #12 Temper, #18 Money, #20 Stress, #30 Failure, and #52 The Blues. So how is this different than the rest? Frustration is the catalyst of all of these problems. I got to thinking about what ties these all together because if I am ever to overcome these issues, I really have to get a handle on the frustration I get when it comes to all of these problems. I don't usually use dictionary terms to define my topic for the blog but, here's the Merriam-Webster definition: a deep chronic sense or state of insecurity and dissatisfaction arising from unresolved problems or unfulfilled needs. As you notice from the postings that I mentioned a minute ago, all of these can be filled right into that definition. I think the word that bothers me the most in the definition has to be "chronic". I never would have thought that 'frustration' would be a chronic condition. The definition leads me to believe that being frustrated is a constant thing...I would have to disagree. The only thing I see that might be an issue is with my Asperger's and OCD because I might concentrate on the feeling of frustration rather than doing something about it. If I felt frustrated all the time then I'd already be dead from severe hypertension!

Sadly, this is a feeling that should never be taken lightly because frustration can create serious issues which again, I mentioned earlier in several different postings. I think we can agree that we all get frustrated at different things for different situations. One can't really say they've never been frustrated because that would make them a robot! I have a feeling that some people may not even realize they are in a state of frustration; if that's true then self-denial can be rather dangerous. One could find themselves in a situation of either high stress, anger issues or worse, suicidal thoughts. If the source isn't discovered, then the outcome could be one of these possible side effects.

I wish I could say that there is a sure fire cure to frustration, but I think I would definitely be lying; and if anyone else tells you otherwise, then their lying too. Going back to the definition, I think at some point we all feel “dissatisfied” with some kind issue; whether it takes place at work, school, home, vacation, shopping etc. then frustration will always be there. For me, the one part of the definition that seems to match me the best would be "unfulfilled needs" because if you've read in any of the previous blogs then you know that I've always wanted to be a writer and for many years I've tried to get published, sadly, with no real success. I haven't given up, but we're talking several years now and not so much as a serious inquiry to show for my effort. I believe my motivation has really been lagging so I think having this need never being met has really been my core of frustration; nothing that my job nor college can fill in the way that I had dreamt. Even among my own struggles, let me encourage you to not give up. Frustration is always going to be there, but don't ever let it take a solid root inside of you because eventually, we all will get a chance to shine...some day.

Lost Piece #1 - The Gospel Truth

"I know my Jesus, I love Him, and I think if he needed me to believe that homosexuality was a sin, He would have mentioned it. He didn’t. When Jesus said that marriage was between a man and a woman, he was responding to a question about divorce, not sexuality.* And even the Gospels... well, even though they are gospel to me, I accept that they are also interpretations of what Jesus said and did and meant -we don’t have a single written word directly from Jesus. He could have left us something - he could have left another list of rights and wrongs when He came to Earth, but he chose not to." Glennon Doyle Melton - Aug 25, 2013
These words were penned by Ms. Glennon Doyle Melton who is an author and Christian blogger. Back in February of 2017 she announced that she was engaged to Abby Wambach a former Women's Soccer Champion. Glennon had been married to her husband (Craig Melton) for over 14 years before she divorced him due to his extramarital affairs.  Glennon had also o…

Piece #110 - My Complex Discernment of Concrete versus Abstract

I very rarely start off any of my blog entries with a picture but, this photo will illustrate a rather compelling discussion about my Asperger brain. I can't think of a better example of just how complicated a small part of concrete versus abstract is processed in my mind. I will do my best to sort out the complete meaning behind this picture. There will be several odd turns but, stick with me because this will actually make sense in the if my wife gets it then we're good!
Defining Terms:
Completeness - The state or condition of having all the necessary or appropriate parts. Uniform - Identical or consistent, as from example to example, place to place or moment to moment. Commonality - The state of sharing features or attributes.
The first area I want to address is uniform. Of course, I'm not talking about an outfit; I'm talking about consistency; the idea that flows smoothly from the top to the bottom. I guess a good example is like looking at a baseball card, a…
