Today, over 50 percent of the world’s population has embraced frustration despite its dangers. Frustration has led to suicide, chronic depression, drug addiction, and many other mental illnesses. For this reason, some people have tried all ways to end their frustrations but their efforts are futile because they try to eliminate this emotion by dealing with its symptoms instead of the root causes.
People, will, therefore, manage to successfully treat frustration only if they know the main factors that cause it.
I believe the following 5 factors are the main sources of frustration, and dealing with them can help eliminate this negative emotion.
Here are they: –
Frustration is caused by –
- Failing to Achieve our Goals/Dreams.
Most of us are frustrated because we are not where we expected to be. We thought we would achieve some of our biggest goals when we reach a certain age. However, when we reached that age, we realized that we are far away from accomplishing our dreams/goals.
Failing to achieve your goals does not imply that you will never achieve them. Therefore, don’t get frustrated, and don’t give up. Instead, keep working and believing and you might end up getting more than what you wanted. The universe works in a strange but awesome way. It might prevent you from getting whatever you want despite working hard, so that you work harder and get more than enough.
- Failing to Accept That Some Things Are Beyond Our Control
Epictetus once said, ‘Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: some things are within our control and others are not.’ For this reason, most of us get frustrated because we try to control the uncontrollable. For instance, we get frustrated when we can’t control the weather or when we can’t predict the future with accuracy.
Realize that frustration won’t fix anything and it’s almost impossible for an individual who accepts the uncontrollable things in life to be frustrated. Also, know the difference between the things you can control, and the things you can’t.
- Failure to Accept that Life is Full of Disappointments
We often get frustrated by life’s disappointments because we don’t embrace the fact that disappointments are part of life, and that everyone experiences them. Although the sizes of our disappointments differ, all of us experience them, and some get frustrated while others don’t, because they understand that disappointments are inevitable, but misery is optional.
Prepare yourself mentally for disappointments by knowing that they are natural, unavoidable, and they also lead to growth. Also, know that you have the power to overcome any disappointments. Lastly, realize that those who prepare for disappointments seldom get frustrated.
- Not Accepting yourself
Today, many people are frustrated because they hate their bodies, looks, their financial status, and many other factors about themselves.
Always learn to focus on the positive side of your life, and know that you can change everything about yourself if you commit to making a change.
- Not Accepting People as They Are.
Another main source of frustration is that we fail to accept the fact that not everybody will be the way we want them to be. To enjoy life, we have to be who we are. Therefore, we have to let people be who they want to be. You become frustrated if you try to force people to behave the way you want them to behave because they will never do so. They might try, but they will eventually fail because everybody always wants to be him/herself.
Learn to accept people as they are.

4 Sad Reasons Why Life is Tough For Most People
Today, life is almost tough for everyone, and for this reason, many folks are depressed. Recently, the World Health Organization revealed that suicide rates caused by depression have increased by 60 percent since the 1950s. Besides this, physicians claim that depression will be the most widespread mental illness in the next two years.
Anyway, people all over the world are complaining about life’s toughness, and almost everyone doubts if life is really a blessing. However, if you take a closer look at life, you’ll realize that it’s absurd to conclude that life is hard because some people are living a peaceful and easy life.
That being said, I firmly believe that those who believe life is difficult are mostly responsible for making it tough. For instance, a young man who struggles to make ends meet because he started a family before he became financially stable is fully responsible for toughening his life.
Like this young man, most of us are responsible for making our lives tough, and we end up concluding that life is tough.
In today’s article, I will share with you four reasons why life is tough for most people.
- Many People are doing what they hate
Life is tough for many individuals around the world because they are working in jobs they hate five to six days a week. They hate their bosses and their workplaces, but they continue working because they believe that’s the only way to survive.
There is no way life can be easy for you if you do what you hate 24/7. You will definitely become depressed and life will be difficult for you because you will be continuously forcing yourself to work.
I believe The Creator intended us to work, but he never designed work to be tedious and boring. Work was meant to be adventurous, exciting, and fulfilling because it helps us survive. However, we have been conditioned to believe that we have to work in boring jobs all our life for us to have what we want. For this reason, many people do what they hate and they end up making their lives hard.
People who do what they love don’t necessarily find life easy but at least their lives are meaningful because they wake up eager to work.
- People Are Living Beyond Their Means
Today, many folks are living beyond their means because they want to appear successful. These behavior makes their lives tough because it makes them to constantly get into debt.
You will never enjoy life if you constantly live beyond your means because deep inside, you will always know that you are living a lie. Besides this, you will always be unsatisfied with your life, because you will constantly compare yourself with others who are far better than you. These factors will make life difficult for you.
- We don’t care about each other
Life is tough for many people also because we rarely help each other. In ancient Africa, people found life easier because we were so kind to each other that we left food and water at our doorsteps for people to eat and drink.
However, today life is tough for many individuals because the modern society is selfish and egocentric. We care less about each other, and we seldom bother helping people who are going through hard times hence making life tough for them. We adhere to stupid notions like, ‘Every man for himself and God for us all,’ because we have become an individualistic and stupid society that focuses on showing off useless and valueless things instead of helping each other.
I believe life would have been easier if we all loved and helped each other. We could have created a heaven on earth if everybody was kind and generous.
- People Are Stuck in Unhappy Marriages
Life is extremely tough to folks who can’t get out of unhappy or abusive marriages. These folks know that the only way they can experience happiness and freedom is to leave their marriages but they can’t do so because they fear the consequences of divorce or separation. They, therefore, resolve to live a tough marriage life full of constant fights because they believe it’s the only option.
Life is obviously tough for these guys because they are forced to live with the people they don’t love 24/7. How is that possible?
Is life tough for you? Do you agree with me on the above reasons why people find life to be tough? I believe life is only tough because we toughen it. And for this reason, we can make it a little bit easier if we help each other, and avoid doing what we hate

4 Main Challenges Dream Chasers Face
It recently dawned on me that the few individuals who have the courage to chase their dreams often give up because of the challenges they face on the journey.
As a dream chaser, I have faced both small and large obstacles that made me realize how easy it is to give up on dream chasing. These hurdles made me realize that people who dreamt big and now live their dreams truly deserve them because they overcame the following TOP 4 CHALLENGES DREAM CHASERS face.
- Things Not Going As Expected
One major challenge I realized dream chasers face, is that things seldom go as they anticipated. When they start chasing their dreams, dream chasers often believe that everything will go as planned. However, during the journey, they realize that almost nothing goes according to their plans. Unexpected obstacles pop-up and their dreams take long to come true.
My research on people who live their dreams made me realize that these individuals also experienced this phenomenon. Most of them reveal that things never went their way for some time, but eventually, they got more than what they expected because they kept pushing themselves harder.
- The Lack of Money
Almost every dream requires capital for it to come to true. However, not every dreamer has the capital to actualize their dream. For this reason, many individuals are often forced to continuously borrow money from family and friends, and take odd jobs for them to fund their dreams.
- The Need to Let Go Anyone That Doesn’t Support Their Dreams
When they start chasing their dreams, many individuals often realize that they have to keep distance from people who don’t believe in achieving dreams.
Personally, I realized that I had to avoid the people – including friends and relatives – who don’t believe I will achieve my dreams because they always infect me with negative energy, and doubts that make me consider giving up. They usually demoralize me, and I always have to force myself to work whenever I associate with them. For this reason, I realized that I have to avoid them completely because chasing and achieving dreams requires positive energy.
Avoiding close friends and relatives for the sake of my dreams is very challenging, and initially, I felt sorry for doing that. However, it dawned on me that it’s the right thing to do because I am living my life, not theirs.
Many dreams/projects require a large investment of time though they often take long before they start producing financial returns. Therefore, dreamers always have to work for someone for them to pay their bills hence resulting in them having a small amount of time to work on their dreams despite the fact that actualizing dreams requires lots of time. Furthermore, within that small amount of time they have, they still have to allocate time for friends, family, exercise, and rest.
Some dreamers end up ignoring family, friends, and a healthy lifestyle so that they find ample time to work on their projects.
Therefore, if you are planning to chase your dreams, be mentally prepared to face the above challenges.
Also, realize that dreams don’t come true easily, and those who achieve them deserve them because they transcended the above hurdles. The only motivating factor is that these individuals are normal individuals like you and me, and IF THEY DID IT, WE CAN ALSO DO IT.
