Does Frustration Make You Cry or Try?

Frustration – Does it Make Your Try or Cry?

Have you ever been so frustrated that you just wanted to cry? Or do you get more determined to try harder when you are frustrated with a problem? Everyone at some point in their lives has to deal with frustration.




Frustration according to the dictionary is a feeling of  dissatisfaction, often accompanied by anxiety or depression, resulting from unfulfilled needs or unresolved problems.  I had a frustrating week due to some technical difficulties. I felt the more I knew the more I needed to know. Of course staying up past my bedtime did not help out the situation and it almost made me want to cry. I do not cry easily – just ask my sister. I took a deep breath and persisted on. The next day I felt less frustrated.

What are some ways you can stop your frustration? Here are some I use:

  • Stop – Stop what you are doing and take a break
  • Learn – Learn what it is that you don’t know how to do and is frustrating you
  • Hire An Expert – No time? Hire someone who can do it for you and cut your budget somewhere else
  • Go for Walk – Taking a break and going for a brisk walk can clear your head
  • Give Up – Not an option that I like at all
  • Take a Deep Breath – It can clear your head
  • Cry – Why not? A good cry can be refreshing!
  • Talk to a Friend – Talking it out with a friend can make the issue not seem so big and they may offer some good advice
  • Ask Others – Ask others who may have an expertise in the area you are frustrated with – most people love to help out
  • Laugh About It – Find a way to laugh about it – it can definitely lighten up your frustration
  • Watch a Movie – Watching a good movie can take you away from your reality for a little while
  • Play with a Pet – Pets can be therapeutic. Pets are known to improve your health. Don’t have one? Borrow one or visit someone who does
  • Rest – Be sure to get enough rest. Being overtired will not help your frustration and can make it worse
  • Connect  – Connect with someone inspiring. They can give you an uplift and a better outlook to your situation
  • Read Quotes – I love reading inspiring quotes too – they can encourage me when I’m frustrated or down from the frustrating situation

  • Lisa,

    Lovely blog. I just wanted to stop by and say hello. If you don’t yet recognize me, I am the SEO guy!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Blogs should be more about social networking, I would like to see you around more…

  • I hope your week gets better Lisa. I hope you at least have the weekend to unwind and get your wits back. Me? When I get frustrated, I get more determined and get angry. When I’ve exhausted all venues, then I might sulk and feel sorry for myself but not for long. The angry and determination kicks right back in. If I can’t resolve the frustration, then I know, it wasn’t meant to be. 😉
