Disappointment

Family drama is never welcome, but it always makes an appearance.  Am I right?  

Well, disappointment is something that also makes an appearance in life, and on many occasions.  Over the weekend there was much disappointment.  Plans were made, but they had to be broken due to circumstances beyond our control.  No fault of our own, but still the blame game ensues (along with some family drama).  *Sigh*  Extreme disappointment led to anger.  And anger led to a bit of family drama.  *Another sigh.*  But with disappointments of today, we should realize that it's only temporary, and we can hope for a better tomorrow.  You can't let your anger get the best of you.  You have to let it go.  Tomorrow can be better, and it will be better - if you let it.



Sometimes we can't just reschedule the plans that were made, and sometimes in life you've got to miss that important event you were looking forward to for so long.  It happens.  Life goes on.  You'll be OK.  Hope for a better tomorrow.

What would you tell someone who has just experienced a huge disappointment?

sorry to hear your plans didnt work out...
but you know, in my life something doesnt work out all the time so I have learnt to accept it and i strongly believe that maybe its for the best because I guess that maybe something even greater and better will come instead :)

And later I would understand why that particular thing didnt work out because everything has meaning :) sometimes its hard to believe in it because disappointment is too huge at that moment but later everything sets in its right place :)

I am glad you put the words life goes on in the end. Honestly , if we are high on family drama , I can do nothing except of shouting on others and say nothing except of blaming myself. Well, it doesn't help. It's just random error which is beyond of our control.
At this time, I'd love to tell you that life gives many opportunities again and again. If today is not your day , maybe some other day your plan will work.
So take a deep breath. Better luck next time with your plans :)

I have found that most of my dissapointment comes from me thinking I have full control over a situation. Every time I feel it sneaking on (and it does it often enough) I consider, did I do everything I could? Well, then that is all I can ask for! I can only control myself; as much as I would like to control others :-D

And when that doesn't work I like to think:

"And this too shall pass."

Smile, even if you gotta fake it - you will start feeling it soon enough :-)

I remember the first time something really big didn't get to happen for my daughter- she was 9 at the time. It was a hard learning experience and there was a lot of coaxing, talking, explaining, loving and now we laugh at her reaction - she is 32 now.

I'm sorry. I understand how you feel, though. And I've had enough family drama to last me about a million years, so I get that too. Hope things look up soon. :)

Like Melanie already said, I guess it is "this too shall pass"
or there's a reason for everything...
or maybe it's a blessing in disguise.

In any case, I hope I won't be disappointed myself as I'm anticipating a hawaii trip but from the looks of things, it just might not happen any time soon.

blessings!

Ugh, family drama is the worst! But it usually resolves itself pretty quickly and everyone moves on. Hope yours is over soon!
