To dream of being frustrated represents feelings about difficulties, challenges, or obstacles you are having. Feeling annoyed by someone or something. Too much willingness to accept a problem. Keeping your frustration or anger bottled up. Anxiety about communicating your true feelings that is causing a problem to get worse. Being too nice or respectful to someone that is causing problems. Ignoring your own happiness to keep others happy. Sensitivity about something you like not being as easy as you think it should be. Feeling that others are not helping out. Frustration that someone or something is holding you back in life.
Negatively, frustrations in a dream may be a sign that you are allowing yourself to get too emotionally involved in something that may be hopeless.
Often times frustrations in dreams may mirror waking life situations where you are allow frustrations to build up or go unexpressed.

Example 3: A woman dreamed of feeling frustrated that nobody was helping her. In waking life she was taking care of her sick mother and her stepfather as they battled serious illnesses. She felt she couldn’t cope and that nobody was helping her.
