The gift of feeling annoyed

Do you notice yourself feeling a bit cross sometimes about the way other people are acting? You’ll spot it if you hear yourself saying ‘I can’t believe when she…’ ‘Why do people always…’ ‘I’m so annoyed when…’ You mightn’t say exactly these words but I’m guessing in the last week you’ve said or thought something similar. The wrongs may be relatively minor, but they trigger feelings of frustration, even anger. Those around you might nod sympathetically and even join you in your (mini) outrage and share their own stories.

But rarely does anyone say ‘hang on a minute, what’s really going on here?’. Here’s a start – firstly you’re in a place of judgement. Now before you get defensive or hide away feeling bad, we all do it. If you’re human, you are judging pretty much all the time. You are judging others and you are judging yourself. The kicker is we rarely cheap cialis sydney acknowledge that side of ourselves and generally find it tough to bring awareness to it. It’s part of our Shadow Self.

Within your judgement is a gift, wrapped up tight and often hidden. It can be coaxed into your hands if you’re ready to do a bit of self-enquiry. It’s not just asking ‘why does this make me feel angry’ because you’ve found your reasons (or so it seems). Going deeper, ask ‘what is not feeling right within me at the moment?’, ‘what part of me is hurting?’, ‘what do I need but I’m not getting?’ ‘what old wound is being stirred up?’.

When you’re prepared to do your Work, including poking round in your Shadow Self, the rewards far outweigh the angst that righteous anger provokes. And the shift towards a more compassionate buy ajanta kamagra uk life, for both yourself and others, takes a big step in the right direction.
