Everyone gets angry and frustration is an emotional reaction to the same. Hence it is impossible to avoid frustration altogether. There are, however, ways how to deal with it
Frustration is hard to ignore, especially when you are in your teens and have pressures of school, friends, family, peers, and hormones. Feeling oppressed by the authority of your parents, hurtful experiences from dating and friendships or uncertainty of the future, there are numerable triggers of frustration. However, luckily, there are ways to cope up with it.
Don’t run away
Whenever you feel like nothing seems to be working, sit back, relax and take a closer look. Never try to run away from your feelings of frustration. Acknowledge the fact calmly that you are depressed.
Talk it out
Talking to someone who is close to you will help you feel better and gain a new perspective into why you are feeling frustrated. If not, then you can write down your feelings and read it over and over again to see if there is anything you can do to change things for better.
You also have to understand that there are certain things which are not under your control. Therefore, it is only wise to accept those things as they are and never fret about them.
Shift your focus
As we know anger and frustration go hand in hand, try to shift your focus as the slightest hint of anger. Shift your focus on small but demanding activities. For example, go for a walk or clean up the mess that you’ve been thinking to do since a long time, cook something or any other activity which will divert your attention for the time being.
Know your accomplishments
Make a list of all your breakthroughs including big and small. When you will realise that you have succeeded in the past, your current burden of frustration will get loosen up a little.
Remember – It is only normal to get frustrated at some point in life, but you should never let your frustrations drive you. Take control of your anger and try to stay positive as much as you can
