“You pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That’s a part of it.” Denzel Washington
When something is irritating you, one of the best things you can do is attend to it. Once you deal with it to the best of your ability you put the irritation behind you.
For example, you have received an email that bothers you. If you respond to it to the best of your ability, you will get relief from anxiety and worry.
If for some reason you can not deal with what is nagging you because you do not know how to deal with it, then allow some time, say 12 – 24 hours, before tackling it. But the longer you wait, the longer the anxiety will linger on.
Or there might be many circumstances or situations which might seem overwhelming or you realize you can’t be perfect at. But you just have to do what you think is best, because, it’s not about the situation or the solution, it’s how you deal with it and how you let it shape you to become a better person.
