My name is Tessa Diane Whitten and I get frustrated quite easily sometimes. There you go, I said it. I hate this about myself but its part of me. Now, I am by no means one of those people who are always stating all of my frustrations but they are still in my heart. The devil loves it when I get frustrated. I hate giving him happiness. 
So recently I got in a state of being so frustrated with a few people. EVERYTHING they did I could not stand. It was horrible. I was praying one day about it and asking God to just help me conquer this problem. I then opened my Bible app on my phone and there it was. The verse that pierced my heart. I had to fix my problem and God knew what to say.

Proverbs 18:2 "A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions."

Oh boy, That verse changed everything. I don't want to be a fool! In my heart and sometimes through my actions I was definitly taking delight in airing my opinions and I by NO means was planning on understanding where that person was coming from. 
I am sharing this because I know I cant be the only person who struggles with this. It's not good to have these feelings within you. I encourage you to fix the problem. Only with God's help of course.
