Misplaced Frustration: Scapegoat 1
About the Guest
Frustration is not a patient emotion so it tends to erupt. Sometimes it's safer to be frustrated at people who are less valuable to us. But then again, maybe it's safer to be frustrated with someone who can handle your anger and it won't go anywhere. The point is this: don't scapegoat someone else. Don't take things out on a spouse just because they are standing there or a stepparent just because they are an easy target. Be responsible and talk directly to the person you are frustrated with.
We’ve all done it. We’ve all taken our anger out on someone who didn’t deserve it. But why?
