Sometimes things don't go as planned. Just when you think everything is in order you get thrown a fast ball and you have no choice but to deal with it. It's frustrating those fast balls. They come out of nowhere and you have no choice but to deal with it.
Disappointment takes place because of many things, factors, and situations. It could come up because of how a friend treats you, a work situation not working out like you'd like it, or family members treating one another unkindly. All are extremely frustrating and you wish they wouldn't happen, but they do.
So how do you manage after the fact? Do you let it get under your skin, frustrating you to no end? Do you get angry and lash out - blaming the person for their wrong doings?
I like to think that karma is a b**** and though that may seem harsh, that is the truth. As a Christian in all honesty I have such a hard time turning things over to God. God says revenge is his and yet as humans it is hard for us to let go or move on for that matter. But we have to, otherwise disappointment turns into other horrible emotions and turns inward, threatening to consume us.
So how do you let go of disappointment? You don't let it consume you. You have to be at peace with the situation. This may not happen right away, but it will happen in time. Part of leaving disappointment behind is opening new doors through new activities that will help you grow. Loving a person despite their imperfections but still having respect for yourself is important too.
Necessary for growth and necessary to leave disappointment behind.
Disappointment... I don't know about you, but oh how I wish that it wouldn't come up just when I feel that everything is going fine.
