How to Cope With Disappointment
Having your dream crushed can leave you sitting in emotional rubble, feeling disempowered and confused.
Our disappointments have many faces: Causes, or candidates, you believe in get creamed. The most interesting first date you've had in a long time ghosts out. You realize that your partner is never actually going to change. The pink lines of the pregnancy test fade away, and the bleeding begins. Bad things happen to good people. People fail you.
If you get in the ring of life, sooner or later, you're going to take a gut punch.
So how do you keep going? We know that grit — the ability to get back up and continue plodding forward despite adversity — is the ultimate key to success. But It’s hard to maintain your hope and motivation when reality slams the door in your face.
If you've suffered with disappointment lately, here are three ideas that can help, plus the one thing you should definitely avoid doing.
I hope it helps you find peace, strengthen your resolve, and turn your face towards future.
