Are you interested in knowing the reasons why you feel so frustrated all the time?
Feeling frustrated is not an emotion that a person wants to feel all of the time.
Frustration usually stems from stress on something that you want to change but don’t have control over it.
Or, you think that you don’t have control over a situation.
It’s either from something that happened during the day or something that happened sometime in the past.
Why Am I feeling Frustrated?
There are multiple reasons why you are feeling frustrated.
Some of the reasons why you might be frustrated that I’ll talk more about in this article is that, you are engaging in too much negativity, spend too much time on the electronics, or you are comparing yourself to other people.
I’m going to talk about 4 specific reasons why you might be feeling frustrated.
Those four are comparing yourself, feeling like a failure, spending too much on electronics, and engaging in negativity.
Now that you now more of what I am going to talk about in this blog, let us get right into it.
1. You’re comparing Yourself
Living becomes very difficult when you wish to be like someone else.
Materialism and Titles won’t make you have happiness and joy in your life.
I have understood that happiness doesn’t come from outside of ourselves but sadly, some people just don’t understand that.
One example is my brother.
I can think of countless times where he said I will be so happy if I have y and z.
Once he gets the thing he wanted, he is happy for maybe a day and he is back to being irritated and unhappy.
One of the things that will give you happiness and joy is inspiring other people, doing what you love, and not relying on anything outside of you to make you feel happy or joy.
Ask yourself “What do I value?”.
Could it be family, helping others, time, freedom, or you just want to live a simple life?
Make a list on a piece of paper or notepad of all the things that you value the most.
Make sure to take action based on what you wrote down.
2. You Feel Like A failure
Do you feel that you are defeated, or that all the work and effort that you put into one certain thing didn’t pay off?
Life is always putting roadblocks or road signs to guide you along your journey in this lifetime.
When you are disappointed in something in your life, seeing everything in life as an opportunity will keep you challenged in a good way.
The ability to adapt and learn is very necessary to live a very wonderful life.
If you don’t evolve, then your life will be very hard and difficult and you would already die before you are truly dead.
Try something new once in a while, and follow what you are passionate about.

3. Spending To much Time On Electronics
Technology is a great thing that we have today, it has grown a lot in the past decade, and basically, everyone uses technology every day.
But there comes a certain point where you have been on electronics for a way too long.
Maybe one of the reasons why you feel frustrated because you are drained, mainly from being on the electronics for a way to long.
I would suggest cutting down on the amount of time that you are spending on technology and get in nature.
When you spend more time in nature, you will feel less drained, you will reduce stress, and you will feel more at peace.
So when you have the chance, spend some time in nature, it is very beneficial for you.
I used to play video games and watch TV for the majority of the day.
I felt very drained and frustrated most of the day because of it.
But when I decided to cut down the time I spent on video games, watching TV and instead read and going into nature more, I felt a lot more at peace, and I wasn’t frustrated all of the time or at all.
4. Engaging In Negativity
When you are engaging in negativity whether it’s the news, a person, or something else, you will feel negative plain and simple.
Part of living a good life is being peaceful even when the people around you are being negative.
When other people are engaging in negativity, you mustn’t take part or get sucked into the negativity.
Consider ending your support of negative content or people.
Become responsible for yourself and the type of media that you are in-taking every single day.
Share something uplifting and things that you love on social media.
And of course, have some common ground to those who you come into contact with.
personally, with me, I had to end my friendship with many of my friends because of how negative they were.
It was difficult to do because I was friends with them since childhood but I did it and I feel better now.
Since then, I don’t experience as much negativity as I did before.
Now let us go over what I talked about in this blog post today.
The first reason you feel frustrated you are comparing yourself.
A simple solution is to stop comparing yourself and focus on what makes you happy.
Second, You feel like a failure.
Make sure you try something new once in a while and evolve yourself to be the best version of yourself.
Three, spending to much time on electronics.
If you spend to much time on electronics, then get your butt into nature or at least cut the time you are on electronics.
You will have more energy as a result.
Lastly, engaging in negativity.
It is necessary to not engage in negativity as much as possible.
If that means letting go of your old friends then do it.
You will feel a lot better.
Feeling frustration is not a good emotion to feel at all, you might have to cut out some people as I mentioned before, or you have to cut out your time from electronics, but in the end, it is well worth it because you will feel less frustrated.
If you implement any of the things that I mentioned in this article, then you will feel less frustrated in your life.
