Do you find yourself becoming more and more frustrated with your partner? Are their little habits, that you once found cute, now driving you crazy?
Is your partner starting to annoy the heck out of you for no reason whatsoever? Or, perhaps you’ve noticed that your partner is becoming frustrated with you and you don’t know why?
Frustration is a feeling mostly associated with the lack of goal achievement. This can manifest when two people have different or competing goals.
If you both want different things, you’ll find yourselves moving apart until, gradually, frustration begins to creep in.
Whether it’s a goal to buy a home together, what to eat for dinner or whether or not to have children; whatever your relationship goals, it’s essential you both share them as a common goal.
Consider frustration as a sign that something isn’t quite right in your relationship, and use it to motivate you to make changes.
If you let things slide in the frustration stage, you could end up losing confidence in yourself and your relationship, and this, in turn, leads to increased frustration and ultimately, anger.
If your attempts to achieve your shared goals (or personal goals) are constantly thwarted, frustration often grows into anger.
The goal could be something simple like walk the dogs before it rains, but if your other goals felt derailed all day, this simple little task (also) not being done as hoped might be all it takes for an outburst of anger.
Problems arise in relationships when multiple frustrations layer up on top of one another.
You’re on a collision course, and whilst anger can help motivate us to make changes, it more often than not results in destructive behavior which is unhelpful.
For example, when you’re angry, you’re more likely to engage in other destructive behavior (e.g. disrespecting your partner in public, to your friends and family, etc.) You’ll deliberately rock the already shaky foundations of your relationship because you’re so irritated.
