Handling Disappointment

Handling Disappointment


Hello. Have you ever been disappointed when something did not happen the way you thought it was supposed to happen? Well, having experienced some disappointments lately, I can tell you that it is all about us. It’s not about anybody else. Remember, and I know I have to remind myself, you are the creator of your life.

Someone told me once, years and years ago, expectations breed disappointment and frustration because you expect things to happen in a certain way, and nobody else knows those expectations. You don’t communicate them, or you assume that the world can read your mind. So, therefore, when they don’t happen, you become disappointed and disillusioned when ultimately, and this might be tough for you to hear; I know it is for me every time I remind myself of this, but ultimately that disillusionment is with yourself. Yes. It is with the energy that is connecting with you.

Look Into Yourself

You have expectations; be they reasonable or unreasonable, it doesn’t matter. You cells think that the world already knows those expectations, especially if you think, “Okay, I’m going to talk about this, and I’m going to do that.” Your cells hear that conversation you’ve had with yourself. No one else will be in the room with you, but your cells think that that’s already happened, so therefore you become disappointed when it doesn’t happen the way you expected it to happen.

How do you deal with that? How do you acknowledge that? I think you get the opportunity to look into yourself and see what part of this do you play in the disappointment? And keep in mind that every time you say, “Well, I’m disappointed because this person didn’t do this or that, and blah, blah, blah. That keeps you in the victim mode.

Creating Responsibility

Remember, no one else is responsible for how you are feeling. You understand that, right? No one else is responsible for how you are feeling. You are the only one that is creating that responsibility. And as you do, as you are, as you experience it; be gentle with yourself, be kind to yourself, and realize that this world is changing. Every moment, every frequency if you work in a job, even your job is changing. If you have a boss, even your boss is changing because you are changing.

So, if you feel disappointed, I encourage you to take a deep breath, which brings you present; we all know that. And then ask yourself, ” What exactly is it that you’re disappointed with? And what is your part of that creation? And remember, every time you say, “Well…”, turn that finger back to yourself. So, that’s your message for this week: Namaste, y’all, namaste.
