frustration -

Frustration, from the Latin frustratio, is a feeling of disappointment due to being impeded in the achievement of goals. The more important the goal, the greater the frustration is felt. Frustration can lead to stress.

Frustration can come from within (internal) or from outside the (external) person who experiences it. Inner sources include self-deprivation such as lack of self-confidence or fear of social situations that hinder achievement of goals. Conflict can also be an internal source of frustration when a person has multiple goals that interfere with each other. External causes of frustration include conditions outside the self such as a traffic jam, no money, or never getting a mate.
