Are you trying too hard?

Usually, whenever we feel an urgency or desperation about doing something we need to stop doing whatever it is (except when it is a genuine emergency of course).

If you find yourself struggling, trying, trying, trying and getting beyond frustrated, it's time to give yourself a break. Take a walk on a beach, look at the sunset, meditate on your breath. Keep it as simple as you possibly can.

When we're feeling like this it's usually because we're either trying to fix ourselves, another person or a situation. We've lost our faith and trust that things will work out. We feel we have to push harder so that things will work out. If we don't, they'll fall apart. But sometimes things need to fall apart. Sometimes the crisis has to happen and you trying to prevent it only serves to exhaust you even further.
