Career Managing Yourself → Strategies - Frustration/irritation






Thinking about a positive aspect of your situation often makes you look at things in a different way. This small change in your thinking can improve your mood. People are probably not doing it deliberately to annoy you.

Stop and evaluate – One of the best things you can do is mentally stop yourself, and look at the situation. Ask yourself why you feel frustrated. Write it down, and be specific. Then think of one positive thing about your current situation.

The last time you were frustrated about a situation probably worked out fine after a while. Your feelings of frustration or irritation probably didn't do much to solve the problem then, which means they're not doing anything for you right now.
