When involved in a conflict, sometimes aggravation seems to make further participation impossible, but at the same time you are unwilling to exercise your RightToLeave, perhaps because you continue to be too involved emotionally or because you continue to have vested financial or reputation interests.
In either case, frustration paralysis is an indication that your ExitStrategy did not work; unable to contribute, but unable to PullOut, you are stuck.
Ways to get “unstuck”:
- FadeAway – instead of contributing, start by gradually removing your vested interests; this will allow you to pull out later, if still required
- ProvokeCatharsis? – start a FlameWar!
