@denise Hello, it is completely fine to experience this after witnessing an emotional loss. Emotional frustration happens when you struggle with frustration and anger related to trauma or loss, you may try to hide your feelings in the hope that they will go away. Unfortunately, intense feelings must be recognized and dealt with; they don't just go away on their own. You may become angry and blame others for what has happened, even though it is not their fault. This is called displaced anger. Frustration and anger affect people emotionally and physically. You may work out these feelings by talking with someone. You also manage this through physical activity (such as running, cleaning the house, or punching a pillow). Working out frustration and anger in a physical way helps relieve muscle tension and may reduce restlessness and irritation. The first step in overcoming frustration and anger is to recognize that you are feeling these emotions. Here are a few things that you can do like-
Talk to someone about your feelings, You can write about your feelings, Recognize things that you cannot change. If you still have trouble then it is better to take the therapist's help.
