Recording your own thoughts and feelings in a diary is definitely a great way to vent out suppressed feelings. Talking to close friends and pampering oneself and going out is a great way to forget bitter experiences too. You could also adopt a new hobby or start something new to keep yourself busy. Time is the biggest healer. Still, if you are not feeling better you could take up professional help.

Write all your frustration down, let your mind be at peace. It allows your head to forget. You can choose when you want to remember it, that makes it a lot easier.

In my experience, these things get easier to manage with time, and the complete removal of whatever is hurting you, frustrating you, or making you angry. You can't control other people, but you can control how you react to the way they treat you.

The best way in my experence is to let it all out in a healthy way. Try writing a letter to them and tell them how you feel then burn the letter. Maybe just talk about it with friends or even just tell the person who hurt you.

Music is the most amazing therapy available for getting over these emotions. I have found that music can take away any bad emotion or at least let it out of your soul.

The best way to get over hurt, frusteration, and anger is to do the opposite. Bring happiness, help someone, and make them happy. These are all feelings, feeling that YOU feel. You must first understand that they hurt no one, but yourself.

Talking openly and meditation would be the best way to get over frustration, hurt and anger according to me.

Acceptance. Accept hurt, frustration, and anger. Accept pain, rejection, doubt... accept it and see it for what it is; an emotion that cannot rule you or define you, because you are more than your pain.

All things heal in good time. Most importantly is for you to let go of what you can't change and move forward knowing that you are more matured and wiser in not making the same mistakes again.

Find an outlet where you can express it. With hurt, tell the person who hurt you, how they hurt you, and regardless of what they say, move on. Frustration, deal with it (or as much of it) as you can, and let go of what you cannot control. Anger, forgive. I didn't promise any of this would be easy.

Talk to someone. It does not help us when we hold in our feelings. Our thoughts, while they can be wonderful, can be very dangerous. Spending too much time thinking about things and holding in feelings can hurt a lot. The best way to let go of these feelings is talk to someone, even if it is someone who will just listen and not return advice. Try to engage yourself in things you enjoy. Try to occupy your mind so that you can begin to forget these feelings and let them go.

Allow yourself to process each of these feelings by asking what makes you hurt, frustrated and angry about the specific situation. Once you know the real reasons, you will be able to figure out what to do with them in the most healthy and productive manner. Invariably, you will understand the importance of letting go since clinging on to negative feelings is only going to harm you the most.
