Disappointment’s Occur In Life, Face It and Move Forward!

Has anyone ever promised you something and you never received it? You let other things pass because you expected something that was agreed upon, only to have it snatched from beneath you? Someone said they’d do something but never did? These things will happen and people will disappoint you by not keeping their word!

It may upset you and you’ll be dissatisfied with the failure of your expectations, it’s a natural response related to anticipated rewards that never manifest. It can cause frustration, depression and cause you to blame (others or yourself).

There are those who recover from disappointment quickly and you can knock out “Disappointment!” What really gets you is the inability to prepare for disappointment. Say your stocks go up 200% percent and you sell it feeling elated. Then next week you realize the stock is up 300% and if you waited you would’ve made more money so you become disappointed in your action to sell early.

Disappointment drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming disappointment isn’t easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t beat it through sheer willpower, but you do have some control—even if your disappointment is severe and stubbornly persistent. The key to recovery is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself and draw on the support of others.

Here’s a few things you can do:

1. Share what’s happening with a trusted friend or family member. Ask for their help and support when needed, don’t hold it inside. DO NOT HOLD IT INSIDE!

2. Stay social, we have a tendency to retreat within ourselves and dwell, let it go. Get out and be around other people it’ll get it off your mind and allow better energy to flow within you.

3. Go out and get some sun, I know some of you are saying okay Milo, you’re nuts. But really the sun promotes health and provides you with vitamin D which is very important for health. Boost your intake of vitamin B, it energizes you! Take some yohimbe!

4. Speak positively and don’t allow negative thought’s to stay on your mind. I’ll be fine, it’s a beautiful day, I’ve done some great things and will do more, I love me and those around me, I wish love and success in abundance for all. I love, honor and respect myself and something great is about to enter my life.

5. Be aware of what happened, acknowledge what happened, accept what happened, forgive the offender, forgive yourself and let it go!

6. When people have disappointed me, I’ve always said, “if this is the worst thing that happens in my life, I’m going to be fine and live a great life!”

7. Think of all the blessings you’ve received and know you have more coming. This set back is only positioning you for a come up! You can’t stay down because your possibilities are infinite and growth boundless.

8. Tell yourself the truth, do all you can do about it and move on. What more can you do if you’ve done all you can do!

I love you, now love yourself enough to grow forward, learning the lesson and losing the pain!

  8. Love it!! We should shake off all disappointments immediately. I know thats sounds easy, doesn’t it?? If we allow them to manifest, we will begin to dwell in the land of the negative. Dust yourself off, and do not get discouraged, or allow others too. Regrouping from setbacks, and disappointments sometimes can prove to be beneficial in the long run…CYD

  9. Milo, I Love the picture, to cute! I’ve had many disappointments over the last two year. God has given me the strength that I need to move on. He has put people in my life when I needed to pour out my heart. I do not keep anything in and I always release the pain! I love all you have said, but I especially love #7.
