Handle Frustration appropriately

Frustration builds up when you had too much to deal with, or too much to talk about to your friend or partner. Be it anyone sometimes you feel like everything around is falling apart and need to shout at someone.

Whether, or not, you have time for yourself the pressure still builds up. If you don't know how to go about your day. The daily activities and schedules can take on a day with a lot of unplanned chores. Focus on a proper timetable. Past traumatic experiences can lead you to be frustrated and angry.

  • What triggered your frustration?

If you are that impatient person pacing in a queue, then frustration can build up slowly and make you feel quite agitated. I don't often get frustrated and when I do that dramatically changes my moods. I avoid what frustrates me though can't always pass those triggers. When your partner fails to compromise that can be frustrating.

  • What makes me frustrated?

Frustration builds up when people don't know what to do, or who to talk to about certain issues. I can't deal with the irresponsible individuals but try to cope with such emotions. When an individual makes an appointment and does not show up I prefer not to have my book open for that person.

Unless the individual has a good reason I am open for discussion. When someone fails to listen, to what I have to say that is another trigger. I don't expect everyone to be like me but if they showed some responsibility then not everything will be lost.

When in traffic I am calm, and don't get into a rage or get frustrated. Self-control shows good characters and shows you are able to control harsh acts. If an individual is not capable in decision-making that can be most frustrating. Frustration builds up when individuals don't pay attention to don’t respect the needs of others . I walk away nothing or no one can change my mind of the way I think and the way I feel.

I was raised to think for myself and do for me relying on the thoughts of others is no match to me. Music soothes the mind. I listen daily to my favorite singers. Living in a foreign country has caused me lots of frustration and thus the reason for frustration building up for me.

I prefer communication and to be calm and understanding between two people. Crying is good but not for me to express myself and to relieve that feeling it is hopeless. If I can't solve the cause of the issue that can make me feel frustrated.

When someone is not on time the lack of punctuality that can make me frustrated instantly. The lack of responsibility shows me frustration right away.The lack of proper communication skills is another trigger for me.

Frustration leads to many moments in life, disappointments, to yelling, to anxiety, to unhappiness, to sadness and to a lot of anger. You choose to be that way only if you allow the triggers to take over your life. I like to get my point heard and once I have accomplished my point I have a free mind.

I know that frustration can get me argumentative, I try to avoid such arguments. Sometimes, people just enjoy getting others into an argumentative mode. Such behaviors are rude to me and I don't think it is right for one to act that way.

Difficult people enjoy being difficult in conversations and enjoy watching the frustration build-up in others. It is like, I want to explode with rage when someone tries such bad habits on me. I enjoy getting my words out but not in a frustrated way.

Are you aware of how frustration affects you?

I have seen people become frustrated over little conversations that did not go well for in their decisions. If I am personally involved in an argumentative topic that can ruin my good mood. Somehow, certain people know which buttons to push, and how to get others into a foul mood.

I have established what makes me frustrated and that allowed me to see things from my own perspective. I have a different mind and with different thoughts. I don't like to waste my energy on those poor communication skills.

My feelings matter to me if not to another individual. I have self-control and know when to get out of the conversation. There must be boundaries and you must know when to stop the cause of frustration build-up in others.

Some individuals don't know when to stop that can make the whole concept of frustration go bad. It is a shame when the individual fails to respect the other person's views. I avoid blame , and do what I know is best for me to focus on myself.

What hurts and what makes me frustrated is some of my past decisions, I avoid going there. I strive for what makes me feel good, confident, and positive in my daily lifestyle.

I do for me and will always be that way. Frustration builds-up for almost every individual. It is a normal part of one’s life, self-control is what makes the situation a better one. If you don't have self-control all can break loose and become very ugly.

Doesn’t use frustration as your barrier break it down to calmness and happiness. Avoid what triggers frustration in your daily conversations. Your main focus should be the present the moment that makes you feel free and loved. I have changed my attitude toward frustration.

All Frustrated People

  • How frustration affects me?

Frustration makes me feel at my worst emotionally. I feel like there is nowhere to turn and fight back. Sensitive moments that can make me feel out the moment. Frustration builds up when you are in a topic of debate a sensitive issue.

  • How would you react to frustration?

  • Do you take frustration to all levels?

Fight back in the argument. Give it all you got in conversations. Show respect to others views. Work out such conversations and avoid frustration at all costs. When I smile the frustration disappears and I get back to myself again.

When the individual starts talking of a topic of debate that will certainly cause frustration. The best is to go a different path walk away and focus on another issue. Take a walk, meditate, or call a friend don't be part of what you know will hurt you.

Most individuals can get on your nerves for stupid reasons. These individuals get a kick out of their rude behavior. When you on the receiving end that can be most annoyed in their choice of conversations.

People react differently to frustration it is entirely up to your actions. I learned to take a walk and be myself frustration can lead to many horrible memories.

  • What makes you frustrated?

  • Do you have a certain way of reacting toward frustrated moments?

Frustration builds up when you feel you have had enough from someone some situation. It is part of our daily lifestyles. Something that can be ignored or just looked at in a different perspective.

Everyone copes with frustration in different ways. Sometimes people ignore frustrated people and deal with such situations calmly. Others may get physical in such moments. Control yourself and mind when you think you going to explode.

Frustration can get to you so easily

      People who aren't punctual and waiting in long lines also frustrates me. I have to step away from the situation, if possible, or find a way to relax after I can get away. This is interesting. Thank you!

      I like being able to spot those who are being difficult just for the sake of being difficult. Then, I know how to deal with the situation.

      Devika, all the items in your poll can be frustrating, but at the end of the day, I follow your lead and walk away from it. We are responsible for finding our inner peace. Good advice!

      I find writing to be very cathartic. Since I was very young I would write down my frustrations to get them out. Usually I did not write for anybody to read, just write my thoughts and burn them, that can help me let things go.
