I want your input! I’ve been doing research for a blogpost/ podcast and I’m looking for contributions from the Allies community. I’m in the process of gathering information to illuminate the experience of frustration, and the various (healthy AND unhealthy) ways that we each deal with it. If you have thoughts to share, please post a comment below answering the following two questions:
1. What is your definition of Frustration? and…
2. What do you do to work your way out of it ?
There are no right or wrong answers here, it's personal and specific for everyone.
Thanks everyone! Stay tuned for my next post/ podcast on this topic…
