Negative feelings usually make you overwhelmed and you feel like falling in a big black hole. But before that all happens, stop everything, every thought in your mind. Then recall what you did previously and what you did wrong. Once you go over all your actions, you will identify the things that need an improvement.

Frustration gets overwhelming when you allow it to. Instead, leave whatever you are doing and start doing something else. Start seeing things from a different perspective it will help you to think in a different manner. You may see things that you have not seen before and understand what it is that you are not doing right.
Don’t let anger to get in the way:
Being angry won’t help you to let go of the frustration. It will make it more severe and will inflate negative feelings. Instead, try to find reasons of your frustration and make an effort to improve.

It is natural to feel pessimistic when the feelings of frustration fill up your mind. But don’t allow these feelings to weight you down and prevent yourself from succumbing into passivity. Stay active and do things that help you to improve.
