What do you do when you get frustrated or upset? Do you think it helps to ignore those feelings, yell about them, throw things, or break down into tears? It is painfully easy to get frustrated during life and even get a little mad about them. This can happen at home, at work, or when you go out to the grocery store or anywhere else. I do not think it matters where you live, driving can be irritating because so many people are paying more attention to their phones than the road.
Something I have always known about myself is when I get frustrated or upset, I will cry before I yell. I cannot explain why besides saying I do not see a point or like to raise my voice, but I do know crying does not help either. Yesterday when I was at work, I allowed myself to get so frustrated that when finally, I walked away from the computer to clear my head, I not only fussed at my poor cat, and broke down into tears. It was not because I had done something wrong and was in trouble, it was because I had several questions and was not getting answers. It is not like when I ask a question, I expect an immediate response but would like a logical explanation in a reasonable time.
After I had my emotional breakdown, I ended up talking to a few people about the issues I was having. I found out that I am not the only one at my company that will cry instead of scream when they get frustrated. There was only one person that eased my mind and made me smile 😊 because she reminded me, that we are not doing anything extremely important, such as saving world hunger or finding cures for illnesses, and we are not discovering a way to have world peace. She might have added in some explicit language that I found hilarious. I just needed to hear this because it kept things in perspective and helped me to see some things are just not that important and certainly not worth my mental health.
Once I had time to deal with my emotions and let go of the frustrations I was experiencing, I learned one of the problems I was having was a system issue and I was doing things correctly. Of course, this may have made things a little more irritating, but I was glad to know that it was not anything I was doing. The truth is, I allowed myself to get so upset and frustrated, I was not going to do a post today, but was not going to let my day ruin something I love doing.
Unfortunately, life is full of frustrating times, and we need to learn better ways to cope. No matter what we do for a living or who we talk to, it is impossible to make everyone happy. We live in a world where so many people enjoy complaining and putting others down, which is extremely hard to accept. However, knowing this fact should be able to help us keep every situation in perspective and not allow for it to cause us unnecessary stress and despair. This is something I need to work on and try harder with.
