Frustrated For No Reason

Do you ever feel frustrated for no reason? At least you can't figure out the reason right away. I'm not sure why yet but I am guessing that a bunch of little things were frustrating me before I went to bed and because of it I had bad dreams and woke up this way. I am a fairly moody person at times but it is annoying. I annoy myself, Lol. 

My dreams are wide screen, technicolor and sometimes have theme music. They are extremely real to me.  I know that I probably sound like a child. Irregardless this effects my day. Being a christian to be honest my heart doesn't feel right even to pray right now.

I am so tired of struggling with moodiness. I have been on medication before and noticed that the side effects out weighed my actual problem in the first place. For some medication is necessary and I'm not saying this route is for everyone.

Things that have helped me in the past

  • Writing in my journal
  • Praying in writing form
  • Listening to uplifting music
  • Making a list of blessings
  • Helping someone else in worse shape
  • Watching a funny movie

Things that don't help me

  • Talking to my husband about it
  • Thinking too much and not doing anything
  • Complaining

Is it possible that sometimes we want to feel this way?  It is somewhat comfortable? It's just a thought. I know we think who in the right mind wants to feel this way? Sometimes it seems as though we can't help the onset, but maybe we can turn it around.

These are just my random thoughts about frustration and related mood issues.

up & useful! Most people would hold this inside and never reveal for fear of being labeled schizoid or something similar. You have at least recognized your feelings and listed what has helped in the past - that prayer of faith in God that Jesus will 'never leave us or forsake us' is most encouraging during these times...

Thank you Sky, for writing on this subject,I'm sure we all have felt like this and being a christian, sometimes, we don't feel like praying in our present stat of mind,but since we are children of God, we're suppose to pray anyway, because Jesus said come as you are,it doesn't matter what state you're in, he will lift you up out of your depressive moment. Great hub, thank you for sharing. Godspeed. creativeone59

Chemical imbalance and hormones (too much or too little of one or three) are probably to blame. Your medicine is not effective; you should bring this under the attention of your doctor. Your positive actions are brilliant, and yes, those negatives are negative – don’t practice them. But truly, you should confide in your doctor. There are so many different medicine for this specific condition, you only need to find those that work for you. Stay positive!

samsons1- I have no problem revealing my feelings and being aware of them this is true. I'm sure some people have labeled me schizoid. LOL

Creativeone-Thank you for your always encouraging comments. After I published this hub this morning I was off to work, I drove on auto-pilot and prayed all the way to work.

MaritieCoetser- I'm sure you are right. Although I haven't taken medication for depression or anything for the past 3 years I am considering going back to the doctor. The last time I got blood work done everything was fine but who knows. Thank you so much for the link and your encouraging comment. God Bless You All

Sky dear sister: Frustration is often a tool of satan. If he can get us in a confused and frustrated way he can try to drive us to the brink. Being strong in prayer and being strong in will with the help of God is a help. Sometimes though it is better to simply clear our minds and turn to some kind of meditation and prayer and total relaxation, is better.

Dear sweet Sky- I have always been one to wear my emotions on my sleeve. I experience a wider range of emotion than most. From the highest highs, to the lowest lows. I ahve struggled with depression frequently. I have held grudges with the same passion I embrace justice. It is how God fearfully and wonderfully made me. I have flown off the handle and I have held my tongue. I have been cold and indifferent and I have cried at the smallest gesture. God made me this way so I could enjoy the full range of emotion the human experience has to offer. He pointed out to me that some people go through life never truly feeling anything. They don't know what it is like to love with passion. To burn with anger at injustice. To truly feel the depth of sorrow over sin in their lives. To feel the same disdain He does over it. To see it as utterly sinful. And then to truly rejoice as mercy flows. I have made peace with who God made me to be. I am free to be me. Flaws and all. I strive to be more like Him, but when I falter, I understand why and He picks me up, brushes me off and says "I love you. I know who you are, and I love you." You are among the rarest of hearts that can take off the mask of piety to reveal the beautiful face of uniqueness and honesty. I have told my wife that sometimes I don't want her to fix it. I feel that you have the same thoughts with your husband. What I want sometimes is summed up in this little story.

A little girl was sent on an errand by her mother. She took much too long in coming back.Mother therefore demanded an explanation when she finally did come back. The little girl explained that on her way she had met a little friend who was crying because she had broken her doll.

"Oh" said her mother "Then you stopped to help her fix her doll?"

"Oh no" replied the little girl. "I stopped to help her cry"

If you share this with your husband, maybe you could take his name off the list of things that don't help you.

You write with such honest emotion. I'm proud to be your follower.

Everyday, and every second of it you have choices. And sometimes when your world feels like it's crumbling you must choose to laugh or cry. You can do both but always end with laughter.

So laugh manically.

Writing it in the hub, even though you didn't feel good at the moment, touches on at least three of the things on the 'do help me' list. I can see that from this distance, and perspective, while identifying with the feeling from having had something like it before. I agree with evvy09 and your concluding part about there being choices in it, even though that's hardly the time when you'd easily see it, and I only realized that, over years, because of specifically trying to find out more about it. Taking an interest in how.

Also next to that you mentioned turning it around, and to me I connected that straight to the stuff on the 'don't help me' list, where those could be turned around. It helps me to go outside, or somewhere else, and to interact with somebody else, even the cashier at a store, just anybody, for the break in mood.

Try this visualization technique: Imagine you're trying to hold down a number of rubber duckies in the pool then release all of them to God but one. The one you are to hold down is "faith". Whenever I practice this visualization technique it gives me great relief and peace. Hope this helps. Much blessings and you are precious to the Sovereign God.

Thanks for the idea of writing my prayer. I really never thought about that before, but I'll have to try it.

I'm Alicia Oxborn from Orlando USA, i want to use this medium to testify of how i got back my ex boyfriend. After 3 years in relationship with my boyfriend he suddenly told me that he was tired of the relationship and broke up with me, i was emotionally devastated because i really did love him, i tried all i could to get him back but all proved abortive until i saw a post on the internet on how a spell caster Dr. Ikedi helps people restore back their broken relationship/marriage at first i doubted this but decided to give it a try, when i contacted this spell caster via email he helped me cast a re-union spell and within 5hours my boyfriend came back to me apologising and today we are happily together again. Contact this great spell caster on your marriage and relationship problems at ikedispiritualtemple@gmail.com Goodluck

Thanks for the comment, but I don't use spells. I am just praying more and have found all the answers I need from Jesus. Jesus is the ultimate demon or spell remover. He is The Lord of Lords and the King if Kings! Seek The Lord God almighty today.

Hi, I am sorry to hear about your marriage problems but maybe you could cast your cares on God like the bible says instead of casting spells. The bible warns of this

1 John 4:1 - Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

I encourage you Joan to seek the Lord instead today. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for protection against any witchcraft or spells, In Jesus Name. I pray for this lady Joan that you could lead to the road of salvation. I pray for your love to abound and to feel us believers in Christ with you the powerful Holy Spirit In Jesus' Name, I ask these things Amen.
