Driven by anxiety, desperation or desire, our stress creates impatience, aggravation & frustrated behaviour. Relationships suffer and we deny ourselves the nourishment of peace
I want my way!
...a story of human frustration
|I want my way!
and I want it now!
Don't tell me "Later"
Don't ask me "How?"
Just get it done
I just can't wait
No time to queue
I'm in a hurry
I have a vision
What's needed is action
What price agitation?
My errors abound
Hurly and Burly

The main problem in being overly-determined to have things our way is that we have only a limited vision of what our best interest might be. When it comes to the best interest of other people, our vision is even more limited!
Our vision is limited because it can only draw on our past (limited) experience, plus our imagination and personal qualities. This is why a skilful team usually produces superior plans and ideas than a single individual, no matter how good.
Sometimes we do not know what is best for us and for others, or we only consider short-term benefits and not "the big picture". Being open, sensitive and responsive to the criticisms, ideas, pressures and visions of others, and to the world in general, is the essence of "living in harmony". Success and happiness is more likely to come from living and working harmoniously than from narrowly relying on our personal viewpoint and ideas.
Wanting "our own way" easily leads us into "disappointment & frustration"
