What is a big reason to get frustrated for you?
When I do something without full thought around it and then repercussions are to be dealt with, becomes really frustrating for me.
Recently when coming back from India my luggage for domestic flight was much less when compared to international fight allowance.
While shopping I didn’t realise the weight of certain things. On Patna airport I had to arrange my main luggage and hand luggage to accommodate the weight. I was sweating and people were watching. I mean surely that is frustrating.
I can laugh about it now but at the time I was getting all flustered and keeping calm was important. Letting it not ruin my journey and letting it not come in way of being happy had to be dealt with well.
Life does throw a lot of situations which can get out of control despite our best efforts. Help yourselves to not get so frustrated that it ruins your happiness.

I read about lots of people wearing everything they can to reduce luggage weight.
I like to under pack and buy clothes as souvenirs.
I’ve also read of people intentionally leaving clothing behind.
ON OBLIGATION, COMMITMENT, PROMISES, “FRUSTRATION” AND FALLING OUT

💎 I Get “Frustrated” with My Expectations of Others and of MySelf; if Circumstances Change I May No Longer Feel Obliged, Committed and Cease Delivering on a Promise or Fail to Keep a Promise and We Fall Out…for example Let Us THINK!!! about Marriage and Divorce; as a Divorcee I AM At Peace with My Divorced Status but it took Me a Very Long Time to Understand what Happened to Us as a Couple…eventually I Realised that We MisUnderstood Each Other because We Were UnClear about what We Expected from Our Obliged, Committed and Promised Wedding Vows; essentially Being a Marriage with an Expectant Head rather than a Loving Heart, having said that Don’t Be a Spousal or Any Other Type of Doormat EveryBody especially with Work…in Summary Actively Listen and Check for Understanding of the Expectations of Others then Explain Expectations as Clearly as Possible and Check that the Expectations Have Been UNDERSTOOD!!! which (WITCH!!! 🧙 🪄🧹) is NO!!! Easy UnderTaking and why We Have Written Contracts; in Short if We ARE Settled in Our Minds We Accept that The Only Constant is Change and what We Oblige To, Commit For and Promise Others is Subject to Our Small Print based on Our Circumstances

P.S. It Wasn’t YOU!!! at ALL, it was The Ludicrous Airlines Rules and Regulations; that said, some Airlines ARE Flexible about Their Baggage Rules and Regulations
Yes absolutely we get frustrated in different situations and that time it’s very tough to stay calm. Well shared thank you 😊💕🎉
I feel lighter by sharing 😃😃

Great ideas – will remember them
Great write up. Thank you
Thank you 🙏🏼
Thank you for your lovely comment
This happened to us years ago in the Tampa, USA airport. It felt so degrading to be hands & knees down on the floor, sweating, as you said, pulling things out of each suitcase trying to more evenly distribute the weight.Contrary to your experience, I don’t think either of us laugh about that one, even now! It’s more like a . . . grimace. Whew!
Awww, degrading definitely.
“I can laugh about it now but at the time I was getting all flustered and keeping calm was important” Great opportunity to practise equaninimty/upekkha – but a lot easier said than done in situations like that when the rational mind shuts down and the emotional mind (limbic system) is running the show!
Thank you for your comments. I need to understand lambic system further.
I fully empathise with people who get caught up in this.
