Is frustration telling me something?

Last night was a sleepless night. I was up and down and mostly up. So many thought rambling through my mind, maybe it's that darn menopause. Every frustration I thought to myself, there is a powerful message. Frustration

resent it or let it break you down, but to learn from it.

deeply held values (I'll think about that one). Frustration may be my way of telling
myself that I need to more fully prepare for life's
various challenges.

there must be a more effective, more efficient, more
compassionate, or more sensible way to do some particular
thing. Many great achievements and advances start out as

I feel frustrated, after awhile, then I listen very carefully. For
that frustration is giving me some priceless advice. Who am I kiddin' ...Right?
