English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. annoyance

    Abomination (from the Latin ab omen, a thing of ill omen) was originally applied to anything held in religious or ceremonial aversion or abhorrence; as, "The things which are highly esteemed among men are abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi, 15. The word is oftener applied to the object of such aversion or abhorrence than to the state of mind that so regards it; in common use abomination signifies something very much disliked or loathed, or that deserves to be. Choice food may be an object of aversion and disgust to a sick person; vile food would be an abomination. A toad is to many an object of disgust; a foul sewer is an abomination. As applied to crimes, abomination is used of such as are especially brutal, shameful, or revolting; theft is an offense; infanticide is an abomination.

You often don't realize that the anger and annoyance that shapes within you is because the situations and circumstances that you are currently facing has not met with your expectations. You get disappointed when the outcome you expect is not met with series of situations taking place right now in your life. The only factor which can help you resist this emotion is when you allow yourself to be pleasant with your existing situations.
