In a society obsessed with instant satisfaction, waiting for what you want can be torture. Seeing everyone around you moving on to the next big thing while you're still trying to find yours can be, indeed, super frustrating.

But, do not surrender! Here are some things to meditate on and what to keep in mind in case you feel stuck.

Be resilient. This refers to the ability to recover or adapt quickly from difficulties. If you work hard on developing this quality, you'll feel less frustrated when things don't work out the way you planned.

Karma may not apply in this situation. A lot, I mean, A LOT of people don't get their karma. It's practical to learn to focus on your thing instead of overthinking the fact that some horrible people got the good side of the story in spite of your efforts / good behavior.

No problem is forever. This is very true. Eventually, whatever you're going through, will pass. It depends on you if this leaves a scar that only hurts of if it actually taught you something.

The right timing may never come. I hate it when people tell me it's not "my time" to get what I want. Try to think about how would you feel if "your time" never comes. Maybe it's time to start enjoying what is happening now, otherwise, all the whining would have been a complete waste of time.

Your environment matters. Sometimes it's not your fault. If you've done everything in your power to improve your situation (you know, good attitude and stuff), it is very possible that it's the environment's responsibility. It just won't cooperate. What are you gonna do about it?

I guess this is the part in which you contemplate those three dots that are found in every story... What's next? In the meantime that you wait for things to happen, make sure you still go on those adventures you plan and enjoy that not-so-good-but-doesn't-suck job of yours. Maybe what you want is on its way.

If it's not... well, you still got one hell of a story to tell.
