Dealing With Disappointment

People are going to disappoint you in life, it’s just going to happen. They’re going to lie to you, lead you on, put in less effort, hurt you, or pretend to be someone they’re not.

You’re going to disappoint yourself in life, it’s just going to happen. You’re going to make the wrong decision, you’re not going to speak out when you should, you’re going to lie or hurt someone or be someone you’re not.

The only way to deal with it is to analyze the situation and decide whether it deserves your forgiveness or not. Because not everyone will. And dropping them from your life might be hard, but necessary. And some people do deserve your forgiveness. It might be hard to give it to them. It might be hard to forgive yourself.

The hard times in life end up being the times where decisions are made that can better your life. When someone disappoints you, only weigh your feelings on the matter. No one can tell you or convince you how to feel. Then take those feelings and make the best decision for yourself.

Disappointment hurts, there’s no way around it. But in these time, put yourself first and be a little selfish. You’re the one who hurts, so you are allowed to decide how to make yourself feel better.

  1. I have been disappointed and I am sure I have disappointed people. We all need to give ourselves a break. Being human is a hard thing to be but its all we are. Getting our hopes up can be dangerous due to the fragile nature of our feelings and emotions.

  2. I love this post, I can easily relate to it. I have been in situations where I have pretended to be someone that I’m not but eventually my true self always comes out. I guess that’s my part in leading someone on. However, I have since decided if something doesn’t sit well with me I will sort it out from the onset that way I’m clear about who I really am.

    Great post once again!
