C3 Frustration
In psychology, frustration is a common emotional response to opposition, related to anger, annoyance and disappointment, frustration arises from the perceived resistance to the fulfillment of an individual’s will or goal and is likely to increase when a will or goal is denied or blocked. There are two types of frustration; internal and external. Internal frustration may arise from challenges in fulfilling personal goals, desires, instinctual drives and needs, or dealing with perceived deficiencies, such as a lack of confidence or fear of social situations. Conflict, such as when one has competing goals that interfere with one another, can also be an internal source of frustration and can create cognitive dissonance.—Wikipedia
B2 Sources of frustration (my opinion)
C1 Time
D1 Something must be completed in a time frame, for example, you need to meet someone at a certain time. Things happen that prevent it being meeting that person.
D2 You are writing an article, coding, or doing a procedure. It must be completed at a certain time. Something happens preventing its completion.
C2 Goal
D1 A goal must be met, but something happens to delay or cancel the goal.
D2 Example,
E1 We need to arrive at a destination. We get a flat tire. The airline’s computer system crashes. Weather delays. An accident. Some other unforeseen event.
E2 We need to finish a repair. A certain tool is needed but cannot be found.
D3 Example #2
E1 We have completed a project or procedure.
E2 The next day, we test it; it fails to work. It worked yesterday, but today it does not.
Dealing with frustration
B1 Any problem we might have needs to start with truth. There has to be an acknowledgment of the issue. So, it needs to be admitted, “Yes, I get frustrated too quickly.”
B2 Walk away for a few minutes to calm down. Most things do not have to have an instant fix, repair, result, etc.
B3 Plan ahead. I need to tell myself that this will take longer than I think, or I know I need to finish this, but something is going to happen.
B4 If things are calm at the moment, work on the problem. Don’t procrastinate.
B5 Deliberately, don’t rush. Be steady.
B6 Concentrate. Don’t be doing 2 things at once.
B7 Have the attitude that things do happen to delay a finish. Proverbs 22:3 GW Sensible people foresee trouble and hide from it, but gullible people go ahead and suffer the consequence.
B8 If there is no need to rush, don’t.
B9 I pray for God to inoculate me, that is, for God to give little frustrations, help me to recognize it, and deal with it correctly with His grace.
B10 We may be frustrated but God is the deliverer: Psalm 107:28-29 NET They cried out to the LORD in their distress; he delivered them from their troubles. 29 He calmed the storm, and the waves grew silent.
Romans 15:13 NET Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in him, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
