Tolerating Annoyance

Rev. Aaron Bjerke

Welcome to The Well’s Emotionally Healthy Soul meditations to cultivate emotional wellness.

Today, we will explore the common feeling of annoyance. To be annoyed means to be slightly angry or irritated. Annoyance is a precursor to bigger feelings of anger and frustration. It is not inherently bad to be annoyed. We all get annoyed by things, some big, and some small. However, being quick to be annoyed and react in an annoyed way can be described as “irritability.” 

A consistently irritable person will likely have trouble with personal and professional relationships and experience a reduced sense of general well-being. 

This meditation will guide us on how to recognize and tolerate annoyance by cultivating patience.

Let’s begin today’s meditation.
