Frustration and anger is normal. Take 10 deep breaths, slowly exhale, take a walk, and count your blessings. This is a life lesson, accept the challenge.
When feeling frustrated and angry, it is important to remember, you are normal. It is within these moments that we learn more about ourselves. Frustration and anger provides an opportunity to challenge our behavioral thinking. We have the opportunity before us and within us to stop and think how we are going to react. The best approach is to think, with a “YES I CAN AND YES I WILL” deal with my frustration and anger in an way that is constructive to me and respectful to others.
NOTE: Refrain from taking frustration out on other people.
It is best to deal with anger and frustration, as soon as possible, and release all your tension. There are many constructive ways.
Examples for anger and frustration release:
- If you feel like punching something, take up boxing. If you are a physical person, take up a sport that allows you to be physical and exert energy.That punching bag may end up with a hole, it will soon be filled with the release of your anger and frustration.
- Buy some cheap dishes, find a place by yourself and smash those dishes.
- Put ice in a Ziploc bag, take a hammer, turn the hammer on it’s side and smash those cubes….make crushed ice.

This is where the people you are spending time with will come into focus. “Spend all your time with people who believe in you and lift you up.” They are your source of strength. As you have always supported them, let them support you.”
