Disappointment Is Not The End Of The World
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Sometimes there seems to be disappointment all around us. It's funny how you can be having a great day and then all of a sudden you hear about something from either someone you know or from the actual person themselves. Or someone you know may say something to make you feel terrible. How do you keep from letting other people disappoint you? Well it is not easily done I can assure you of that but it is not impossible. We have such high hopes of certain people like your children, parents, siblings, close friends, co-workers, and church members. Our lives are full of people who at a moments notice are ready, willing, and able to disappoint us either directly or indirectly. I don't think they always intend to do this sometimes it just happens.

It is always disappointing when someone does not acknowledge you like you think or feel they should. I almost seems impossible to not let yourself get disappointed, like you don';t have a heart or even care about anything or anyone. People who are like this I am sure are not happy, but them again maybe they are. As human beings we were not made to not care about others, whether they are our loved ones or people we don't know well or at all.

I think it is most difficult to handle the disappointment of a child. There may be many factors involved in why they disappoint you. Whether it is right or not you may have not always been there for them the way they wanted or needed you to be. They may have just not turned out the way you expected them to or their lifestyle may not be one you support or approve of. Neither one of these things can be changed or fixed, you should just accept them for who they are, but make sure they know how you feel and that may keep the disappointments to a minimum. When it comes to your parents the same may apply, they may not have always been there, they may push you to do and be someone you don't want to be.

There are just a few things that can cause disappointment. No matter what you do as long as you have people in your life there will always be disappointment. People will tell you things you don't want to hear. People will do things to hurt you. The way you handle these people will determine for how long and how much their disappointment will effect you.

One more note, you should also think of the things you may do to disappoint others. You should always think about what you do and say to and about others. Having an I don't care attitude towards people is not very good. It is sometimes a direct reflection on disappointment you have suffered. I always remind myself of the saying, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This does not always work but it is worth applying because you just never know. There will always be some disappointment in your life, things can't always go your way. How you handle it is up to you. Disappointment should never totally ruin your day let alone your life, you will be fine whether you believe it or not.
