Nobody feels great when things don’t go the way they planned. And it is sometimes difficult to come to terms with that situation.
We plan something great, we do our best and we hope for a positive outcome.
But when the results are below expectations, the feeling of disappointment sets in.
What do you do? How can you tackle disappointments in life?
First, accept the fact that you are disappointed.
I hope you know it’s totally okay to be disappointed in life. We’re not perfect, we can make our own mistakes. Sometimes, we can have expectations that wouldn’t happen. But you have to accept it. You should realize that it’s totally fine for a person to get disappointed and that is the first way on how you could tackle this.
Remember, you are never a disappointment.
Yes, you are not a disappointment to anybody in this world. You might have made a few mistakes but we all have made mistakes and it’s totally natural for you to feel that way. People will judge you and make you feel bad but all you have to do is look at yourself and decide on how you can sort yourself out slowly.
Learn from your mistakes.
If you’ve felt disappointed, there must be a reason. There was an expectation that was never met by you. Once you accepted the emotion of being disappointed, you have to learn from it. Every professional football player in this world watch their game on Television again so that they could identify their mistakes and bounce back even stronger. In the same way, you are going to learn from your mistakes and slowly, step by step, you will learn and be the best.
Going out of your comfort zone will surely leave you disappointed.
Congratulations, you have stepped out of your comfort zone! When you do stuff that other people cant think of, when you do stuff that you’re not comfortable with, then you are bound to have disappointments on the way and always know that it’s life’s natural way of showing that you could be pushed harder and you shouldn’t fear anything in this world.
Talk about these issues with your friends and family.
When you’re feeling disappointed, always remember that you have your parents to support you. You have your friends to support you. You are not alone, and you’re more than welcome to take help from anyone you love. Talking to people is always a good idea. Always know this.
Take a good break.
It’s okay to take your time out to figure everything. YOu might not feel like doing what you thought of doing and that’s okay. You’re allowed to take a break, you deserve it.
Find motivation again with the help of others.
Slowly bounce back up. Ask your friends for help. Gain some momentum and motivation. Make a plan on what you’re planning to be in 6 years. Work towards it. You will reach major heights, I’m sure.
In spite of whatever disappointing experiences come our way, we shouldn’t allow bitterness to take root. Although disappointment is inevitable, being discouraged is always a choice.
