I’m getting frustrated pretty easily. I keep pushing my frustration down, but maybe that’s not the best thing to do. Yesterday, my car decided not to start. It ended up working out okay, but it pissed me off when it happened. It’s just another thing to add to the list of crap that I’m dealing with.

When I get frustrated, I generally get very quiet. I usually don’t talk, smile, or do anything; I’m just there. Every once in a while, I will vent to my mom or my husband. I think I should allow myself to express my frustration, otherwise I’m afraid it will erupt at some point.

I wasn’t always like this. I used to be able to express my frustration and anger, but now, even the idea of it scares me. I even get scared when I’m around others that are full-blown angry because I don’t know what’s going to happen. I have a fear of the unknown. I need to find a happy medium. I know it’s not healthy to be angry every day, but it’s also not healthy to pretend not to be angry.

  1. Life throws us curve balls when we least expect it. What do we do? I try imagining it’s a bump in the road; unexpected events are challenges that are not always easy to deal with. But, for me, I can’t bottle all that anger and frustration inside me. I have to get it out. LIke you, if I don’t, I’ll explode most likely at the wrong moment with the wrong person over something petty. Ideally talk to someone. But not everyone is going to be receptive. So I take the time to write it down. Use a private entry here. Many times it works for me!
