I found myself very frustrated recently and have been in that state of mind more often than I like when working on my laptop.
What is frustration and how do you deal with it?
Frustration, according to several online dictionaries is: an emotion, related to anger, not being able to achieve one’s goals, a negative predicament or being annoyed.
When you search for the word Frustration, not only will you find several definitions but you will also find multiple articles on how to deal with that emotion.
For me, frustration can threaten to overcome me when I’m working on my computer trying something new or working with glitches. Because I didn’t have the advantage of growing up with computers and haven’t taken any formal classes related to programming or other technological issues, when I cannot work something out on the computer I’m never quite sure if it is a glitch on that particular site, something on my laptop that is not working properly or me making the same mistake repeatedly.
I have found that when I start feeling frustrated at my computer it’s best to walk away from the source of that feeling. I take a break. Sometimes I “sleep on it” before coming back to the task at hand. Thankfully the majority of time I find out that it was either a glitch on a site or in a program or someone has pointed out my mistake and has shown me the correct action to take.
I suggest taking some quiet time to think about what issues in life frustrate you and how you deal with them.
