Have you felt agitated by something? Of course you have, who hasn’t? I want to share with you how you can use your agitation to aid your life and resolve the issues you may be facing.
Feeling agitated is naturally associated with being a bad feeling. That agitation can get in the way of feeling good.
Actually, that feeling is very important – it is there to tell you what is wrong! Think of it as passing a warning sign; when you pass it, you know to be wary and to change your direction.
This feeling is there to warn you about something, this is why it is so important that you act on it, rather than ignoring it and hoping it will just go away.
When you ignore this said agitation, it will go and then return continuously until you take action. And when you ignore it and it returns, it will likely snowball and feel worse each time.
Take control in the short term
There are two ways you can take control of your agitation. The first is a short term fix. This is when you make a change when might mean, for example, telling someone something they don’t want to hear.
For instance, if you feel agitated whenever one of your friend’s comments on how you dress, in the short term you can ask that friend to not comment on you like that anymore.
When you take action on your agitation in the short term, however, you relieve that stress on yourself only until the cause returns again.
So, you must listen to that feeling and take note of what can be done to alleviate feeling like that in the future.
That agitation for your friend might be a warning sign that you and said friend have drifted apart, and they are now having a negative impact on your life.
Take control in the long term
In the long term, you may want to sit down with them to explain to them that what they are doing is upsetting you, or even let this person know that your relationship is not as positive as it used to be.
By taking control of your agitation, you will gain the ability to listen to yourself and take action for a stress-free and anxiety-ridden life for yourself.
