The definition of frustration is feeling distressed or annoyed because of your inability to do something you want to do or to change something you want to change. There must be something you want to do that you feel as though you can’t do or something you want to change that you feel as though you can’t change. Try to think about what that might be. Perhaps, you are confusing frustration with another emotion.
Your anxiety and stress probably have a lot to do with the way you are feeling. The last several years have been quite difficult for you. Moving is stressful. Moving four times is quite stressful. Many people never move that often in a lifetime. With each move, you struggled. Your constant moving, anxiety and stress and having been bullied, might all be contributing to what you are feeling.
You should be discussing these issues with your counselor. You might never learn the source of your frustration, but counseling could help you overcome it. Sometimes, knowing the source of the problem is not as important as treating the symptoms of the problem.
Consider starting a journal to record your feelings. This might help you to understand your emotions and what might be causing your distress. Journals can reveal patterns about our behavior and emotions. You might also find that journaling helps to relieve your frustration. I hope this helps. Please take care.
