This really doesn’t have much of an answer, but I really need to find a place to just ramble on with my thoughts. This may or may not make a whole lot of sense – I apologize in advance.
What do you do with disappointment. When someone has really let you down. When you really cherish someone and you hold them in high regard but they do, what they have to, what they need to, what just happens at the moment and you’re opinion of them, while not shattered, is tarnished? You may still think the world of them, but you just know that you’re mind is stuck on something. Where ever it is?
What do you do with your own disappointment? When you know your not holding up your end of the bargain? Whether it’s to yourself or you’re not holding up to something you’ve set out to do? How to find that it’s ok in the moment? How do you move past?
Is it ok to be disappointed in yourself and those you care about? How is it possible to learn from that disappointment in a constructive way. When you know that communicating your disappointment will do no good at this time; when you don’t know how to vocalize your disappointment; when you’re not sure what you’re really disappointed in?
Disappointment is one of my least favorite emotions. It’s the least defined and the least productive, yet the most prevalent.
