Disappointment is perhaps one of the most difficult things to deal with in life. Often, we look forward to something and are crushed when it does not happen according to our plans. Sometimes, we put faith in people, but they often disappoint us through their actions or attitudes. And, we often give much attention to things, but they sometimes break and leave us crushed. Disappointment in life is directly related to your expectations. When you want something, expect to have it, achieve it or experience it and it doesn’t become a reality, you feel let down, upset and/or disappointed. Why do people set themselves up for disappointment by creating mental expectations for some result that may be in the control of others: parents, a spouse, a company, a boss or a friend?
Bad luck? Bad Karma? Either way, disappointment….. Life’s Setback or Self’s Pity ?
