Have you ever been frustrated with a person or some circumstance? Today, we see more and more people experiencing this emotion. Frustration is a state of tension that occurs as a result of some goal-directed behavior that is being thwarted or postponed. It is also the equivalent of disappointment, impediment and failure. The root cause of frustration is insecurity and is the outcome of persistent emotional imbalance in one's life. This bafflement is the feeling that comes when you believe you are being stopped from reaching your goals. All of us have experienced this at one time or another, but then we get our bearings straight and move ahead. For some people, it stops them every time. It begins to anger you to the point of complete discouragement. It causes us to think irrationally, take things out of perspective and begins to focus in on someone or something and blames them for our lack of success. It is something we can control, by being patient and realizing that setbacks can later on produce greater success if we handle them properly. So, when you start to feel frustration coming on, take a deep breath, take a step back and allow yourself to keep it in perspective. Understand this: if your plan gets altered it's not the end of the world. It just means you have another opportunity to succeed.

Just A Thought.  God bless.
