Disappointments Do Happen

Disappointments are a fact of life. No one can escape them. The trick is to not let it hinder your progress. If someone has let you down it’s alright to let them know, but don’t assume it on purpose. Sometimes a persons memory to do an important thing for you just isn’t that important to them and in the interum of your goal being met, it becomes absent in their daily thought of things they need to get done for themselves.

They’re times when all the preparation in the world throws you an impossible curve ball which alters your whole sceme of action in a situation where you just knew things were thoroughly thought through. Happens all the time.

And of course, there are times when a structured order deviates making it unfair for your accomplishment. You think to yourself, “The proceedure has always been…” and out the door went your senority or position.

All these things are not about you being a failure by any means. It doesn’t mean that your plans were not outstanding or that your acquaintences out to ruin you. Most importantly, when these things occur, one should not chalk up relations or chuck their original plans. When disappointment rears its ugly head in any area of your life it should not bring forth hesitancy in creating or revising a new avenue. It should not make one fear another challenge and settle for what’s easy or safe.

Remember that you are not the only one who goes through these trials. Disappointments do happen. Those that overcome are those who mend their ties, accept future stakes and seek for growth through the tides.

This is Leslie Goodwin growing through the storms of disappointments.
