Dealing with frustration

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

Frustration is an unpleasant emotion.

What is an emotion?

Emotions are feelings a person has about things. Some emotions help a person feel good and other emotions can make a person feel sad or upset.

What is frustration?

Frustration is the feeling of being annoyed or upset. It is related to anger and often comes with disappointment when a goal or achievement has been denied or blocked.

People can get frustrated for many reasons, these could include a feeling that you are not being listened to, sitting in traffic when you need to be somewhere, missing the putt in a golf game.

Feelings of frustration can affect a person's emotional and social health so it is important that if the person is feeling frustrated that they understand that they could:

  • know what the triggers are that may cause the frustration so they can be best avoided.

  • do breathing exercises. This will allow for the focus to be on something else rather than the cause of frustration. It may also help a person avoid hitting out or saying something they may regret.

  • take a walk to calm down and re-evaluate what is going on. This will help to put things into perspective and help the person understand their feelings.

  • talk to a friend/family member to share how the person is feeling so that they are not bottling the emotions up inside which could make the frustrations worse.
