Disappointments show up in our lives in different ways –

  • Deferment of a dream
  • Shattered expectations
  • Misplaced expectations
  • Rejections
  • Heartbreaks
  • Rocky transitions
  • Stumbling
  • Making incorrect assumptions

Disappointments are personal and can be overwhelming. So, what can we do to ease the sometimes overwhelming pain and hurt?

  • Realize your strength as you cope with the situation
  • Be hopeful and remember that most things are temporary
  • Avoid making excuses and make a decision (what is the worse thing that can happen?)
  • Let go, despite the hurt feelings
  • Take an objective look, seek another person’s opinion as necessary
  • Appreciate and learn from the lesson

I would love to hear your thoughts, how you handle life’s disappointments and how you teach children to deal with the inescapable. Let us learn and teach together.
