Frustration is wonderful (said with a grin) Frustration is not necessarily bad since it can be a useful indicator of the problems in a person’s life and, as a result, it can act as a motivator to change.
Life inevitably has its ups and downs — its moments of relaxation and times of tension. You need to learn to distinguish between what you hope will happen, what will probably happen, and what actually happened. You can let frustration sink down to the tombs of resentment and keep it in the dark recesses of our shadows, or you can use the energy to manage the frustration in order to allow you to remain happy and positive even in trying circumstances.
The definition of frustrate is to prevent from accomplishing a purpose or a fulfilling a true desire. At the first sign of frustration, ask yourself what you could do to use the raw energy in a creative way. There is always an answer. Sometimes we get frustrated because we are struggling to attain something we don’t really want, so we must identify what we truly want.
