To my embarrassment, I was crying again. Real girl tears for the second time, these ones born out of frustration. That didn’t happen to me very often, but I hated it when it did. It was faulty wiring in the female body, tear ducts attached directly to the frustration meter. Trying to explain to men...
No matter how discouraged we get, God has not asked us to do the impossible
From this vantage point he came to a realization that everything that had happened to him before this had been a journey upward through time, everything that occurred after it a descent. If he could not control his fate, why be born?
Constantly stopping to explain oneself may expand into a frustrating burden for the rare individual, so ceasing to do so is like finally dropping the weights and sprinting towards his goals. Those who insincerely misunderstand, who intentionally distort the motives of a pure-intentioned individual, then, no longer have the opportunity to block his path; instead,...
don’t care” actually do. The moment they discuss you with their friends and family, compete with you, bad mouth you to others or react to anything you do or say is when they give themselves away. You can either be saddened or flattered that you effected someone so much. The perspective is yours to determine.
If you always find yourself numbering your troubles, you will never find time counting your blessings. There is no use becoming frustrated in your difficulties while you have all opportunities hiding in them for a turnover!
Is there a definition of a truly good person? …. Many say that “Nice guys finish last”, that “kindness is weakness”, and so on. To those of you who are told “Your too nice” or you tell yourself that. That is something to hold on to! So many people say “screw it” I can’t be...
I am very frustrated by fear of imagination, I don’t think that’s healthy.
I understand everybody’s frustration. The bottom line is it has been a tough year.
Were you born this infuriating?””It’s taken me years of practice.
That should have been my strategy! By the time I’ve worked through the emotions of surprise, admiration, anger, jealousy, and frustration, I’m watching that reddish mane of hair disappear into the trees well out of shooting range.
Maybe that’s why I get frustrated sometimes, because there’s no one to blame for how our lives have turned out. I wouldn’t change any of the things I’ve done, but at the same time I wish things were different than they are. I have no regrets, but there’s also no satisfaction in where I am.

Percy, we’re going to Polyphemus’ island! Polyphemus is an S-i-k…a C-y-k…” She stamped her foot in frustration. As smart as she was, Annabeth was dyslexic, too. We could’ve been there all night while she tried to spell Cyclops. “You know what I mean!
Ten months of frustration was put behind that shot.
Lingerer, my brain is on fire with impatience; and you tarry so long!
IMr Heathcliff, you have nobody to love you; and, however miserable you make us, we shall still have the revenge of thinking that your cruelty arises from your greater misery! You are miserable, are you not? Lonely, like the devil, and envious like him? Nobody loves you- nobody will cry for you when you die!...
That really stemmed from my frustration with the town charter. You’re supposed to back off and not vote [when a conflict of interest arises] but that didn’t happen. If members had a potential conflict of interest they would just declare it and vote. That wasn’t proper.
We would be in each other’s lives again. No, he hadn’t been the best father, but he was my father, and we loved each other. We needed each other. Though he’d disappointed me countless times through the years, life had already proven too short for me to hold on to that. So I let go...
