Disappointments....

We all deal with disappointments at various stages and phases of life...

Disappointment with ourselves
Disappointment with others
Disappointment with outcomes
Disappointment with situations
Disappointment with events
Disappointment with the end
Disappointment with the process
Disappointment with the results
Disappointment with decisions
Disappointment with the current state
Disappointment with the economy
Disappointment with the political situation
Disappointment with our personal finances
Disappointment with our helplessness
Disappointment with our dependancies
Disappointment with our constraints

The underlying reason for all disappointments in life is expectations...

You expect something to happen - It does not - You are disappointed
You expect someone to do something - They don't - You are disappointed
You expect someone to say something - They don't - You are disappointed
You expect something of yourself - You don't do it - You are disappointed

Communicating a disappointing news is difficult
Dealing with disappointments is all the more difficult..
Especially if you had all your hopes on it...
Especially if you wanted it with all your heart...
Especially if it would mean the world to you...

  1. Disappointments come from expectations. The one person I have expectations from is - myself and hence often there are moments of disappointments!
