How do you deal with frustration with yourself?

I've been quite irritated and annoyed with myself as of recent over minor things. Never waking up on time due to forgetting to set an alarm up. Missing out on working on a project due to putting it off or other things similar to that. I'm working on fixing this however I have a feeling of frustration with myself because of this.

I'm not sure what exactly will make this feeling go away however I find that just doing things and getting them over with seems to be the best way to get rid of this.

So how do you deal with frustration?

Hm...

I can't say things change if/when college comes around. That's actually where I'm sitting now.
I can see myself in your situation... I mean, like a month or two ago. It's relatable because of how unavoidable it is, this feeling.

I just remind myself that this 'unseen force' makes its rounds, no matter who you are. I try to enjoy little things and strive to get
involved with new things. Whether it be some clubs or events on campus or something more reclusive i.e. choosing a new anime
and running with it. I also like listening to music, sleeping, and casual volleyball to wind down.

Instead of vocalizing all that is wrong, I let a lax and natural version of myself take over.


Before I get too far ahead of myself, I'd like to say I'm sorry you're bummed out and I genuinely think you're capable of getting out of this slump.
Same for anyone else down on their luck. I can't make you be happy/positive, but I highly recommend it lol

Say "fuck you" to everything like a child and listen to some tunes if possible.

If not, just say "fuck you" to everything like a child and jam out to imaginary tunes.

Learn from it. Figure out what I did wrong and what I need to change. You don't want to dwell on past mistakes, just do what you can to learn from them.

There has been plenty of times when I've wasted opportunities because I wasn't outgoing or didn't feel like it and winded up being frustrated at myself for not taking the extra step. While its easy to forget about it, I kept doing it over and over again to the point where I was really fed up with myself and just decided to make some goals for myself that were only achievable if I put the time into it. I'm at the point now where every day I can say that I had accomplished goal and I'm one step closer to my ultimate goal (example, studying every day to take a test, then taking said test and passing it so I can move up in my career).

My overall advice is to just do what can and hold yourself accountable. Don't dwell or be too frustrated with yourself, just make whatever happened into a learning experience for yourself to do better. Set some goals for yourself so that you can always be proud of yourself.

The first step in solving a problem is acknowledging one exits.
I try to figure out the cause. I know you've been busy lately so mabe you're not used to managing so much at a time.

It's exists**.

And stop spelling "maybe" like that

It's more about a feel of reluctance to initiate something rather than laziness, I think. Understand that the problem exists and that it has become your norm. The trick is to force yourself to create a new normal routine rather than look at each deadline individually. If, say, you have to get up at a certain time, then get ready a lot earlier than you have to. Use the free time to do whatever you want.

Never!
Instead I will defend it.
It doesn't matter how it's spelled so long as the sentiment is understood.

Say " heck you" instead. A child would say that.

My own frustration is generally limited to when I've reached the point where I've cornered myself (mentally).
I'm the type that takes on several projects at the same time (professionally and personally). If I "overbook" myself to the point where I'm finding it difficult to fulfill all duties required under these projects, I start to get a bit annoyed with myself.

To "refute" these feelings, I tend to take a moment (like an hour) and accept that these things have been done and I'll simply have to sacrifice some sleep or personal time (gaming) to get them done. Letting the frustration fester and carry on will only result in lethargy or being pushed even further behind on things because you're letting yourself daddle while you could otherwise be doing something about it.

I usually don't deal with self frustrations, by not dealing with them I usually shrug it off, sigh, and probably do the same again or change my ways because i'm tired of it. As far as how I react when I am frustrated with myself? I usually question my state of mind and ask myself what is it that I am deprived of which triggered me to do such, find it, or not find it, and go from there. It's a quite idle and passive way to deal with things, but it works.

Usually I will put on some really bad dubstep and just cry.

I think my friends and others know how I react when I'm mad with myself...

I have a bad habit of igniting things. So one moment you'll find me burning marshmallows by the gas stove or lighting someone's cigarettes. Uhhhh... Don't ask me why.
