How do you handle disappointment? It comes in varying degrees and from all directions. It can sometimes be anticipated but often catches us off guard.
We have been helping alot of people deal with this lately. Parents disappointed in their children. Children disappointed in their parents. Friends disappointed in friends. Spouses disappointed in spouses. Even people disappointed about their life in general.
The reasons for disappointment are way too vast for a simple blog so I just want to talk a little bit about what to do when you find yourself disappointed. We all do at times, that's just real, but how we handle it can really make a difference.
Generally speaking disappointment comes from unmet expectations. What if we shifted our thinking here just a little? What if we anticipate the fact that people aren't perfect and situations are often difficult so that when things work out we can honestly be delighted!!?
Might that make it easier to deal with things that sorta fall short? It helps me for sure!
However, if you find yourself in a state of disappointment it's possible to use that feeling as fuel. Disappointment can drive you up and out, or down and out. Let's choose up and out! Sometimes we need each other to remind us that it really is a shift in thoughts. Also keep your self as healthy as possible. Our emotional health is directly connected to our physical health. Mostly our gut health. Lots of recent reports on the connection between gut health and depression! Supergreens +D from Touchstone Essentials is a key player in keeping our gut health in balance. In the year and half of taking this (and all of the Touchstone Essentials nutritional products) I can honestly say that bouncing out of low emotional times is much easier!!
What tends to disappoint you? People or circumstances? How do you deal with it? Share your thoughts knowing you may help someone else, and you might just feel better for it yourself!!
Have a happy health-filled day
Everyone deserves "the Good Inside," and, yes, "Purity is Possible."
