The positive ways to manage your emotion and frustation
Much of the anger and frustration we experience in life happens when we confront a person or something that is inconsistent with our desires or principles. And our inadequacy in managing frustrations and anger can be toxic in a relationship. This will lead to overlapping hatred, even for trivial matters can end the desire to relate positively. And certainly no one wants to live in such an annoying and angry situation, no!
Frustration and anger affect a person emotionally and physically. Not only that, frustration and pent-up anger can also cause other problems, either physical ailments or depression. Some people choose to hide feelings of disappointment and expect frustration to disappear. In fact, the painful feeling does not go away by itself, but it must be acknowledged and dealt with in a positive way.
How to Manage and Overcome Frustration
Frustration is closely related to the ability to tolerate a failure. As we age, we learn to be able to tolerate and anticipate every failure that occurs in life. However, everyone's ability to manage emotions and frustrations varies. Keep in mind that frustration is not a bad thing, frustration is a powerful emotion that can function as a 'red flag' that something needs special attention.
The first step you can take is to acknowledge the emotions and frustrations you experience. It is important for you to vent frustrations and anger, but be sure in a good, creative and productive way. You can overcome the frustrations by talking to the nearest person or doing physical activities such as walking, cleaning the house, shouting, or even punching the pillow. Physical activity can help relieve muscle tension and reduce anxiety. In addition to physical activity, other steps you can take to control your emotions and frustrations are:
Relax and clear your mind for a moment. Relax yourself by taking a long, regular breath, close your eyes and focus on what makes you feel relaxed. In addition, you can turn your mind momentarily to other activities, such as playing with pets.
'Worry' or pour out your heart to friends you believe in or who experience something similar will be helpful. Grumbling, complaining and laughing together can help get rid of frustration.
Speak loudly to yourself and write down your feelings. You can even use the recorder and play back what you have recorded. This will help you hear your feelings as if you are listening to others.
Identify possible problems and solutions, and do not focus on what makes you frustrated and angry. You can also make a list of everything that is a problem and annoy you. Then decide which ones can be fixed or changed, and note how to change or correct them.
Go back to your problem, but this time do it calmly and in a new way. Choose and make realistic decisions and stick to them. Then act according to the decisions you have made. This is one of the most difficult yet important steps.
Try not to think much about it. Do what you can, whatever happens. And do not spend your time and energy on it. However, think about what you want to do now to eliminate these frustrations.
To control your emotions during frustration, you can do positive and creative things like exercising, relaxation, meditation, playing music, dancing, painting, or vacationing. And stay calm in the face of each of your problems. When the emotions begin to peak in a deep breath and think before you speak out so as not to regret what you have said.
The key to managing emotions and frustrations is by understanding feelings and emotions before they get out of control, and you lose the ability to think clearly. If you continue to have trouble overcoming frustrations and anger, consult a professional health professional like a psychologist or participate in counseling activities around you.
You can not avoid frustration in life, but you can learn to effectively manage early on. Like so many other things, managing feelings of frustration may not be easy, but in the end this should still be done.
