Frustration - How to Prevent It?
When things don't work out for you, do you scream with frustration or stamp your foot? Or perhaps you roar out loud like I did recently. The football team I support were losing in a match against a far inferior side. Feeling really vexed, and for no good reason, I yelled at the referee to give us a penalty kick. I later realised, to my embarrassment, that I had worked myself up over a trivial thing. There are a lot more serious matters in life than sport; for example difficulties at home or at work which would try the patience of a saint. I'm pretty sure life never runs completely smoothly for any of us. Someone throws a spanner into the works to stop something going well, to prevent progress, or hinder the fulfilment of our hopes. So how can we deal with this sort of thing? Is there any way of coping without getting steamed up with frustration?
