Dealing dating disappointments

Disappointment can hover at the front of your mind and niggle at the back, bringing you a grey perspective on life, even if you’re trying to forget about it.

Here are 4 steps I’ve recently identified in my own process for genuinely getting past disappointment: One of the hardest things to do in a world where everything is immediate—we are all under external pressure, and time is a scarce resource—is to just let yourself experience a feeling.

It’s complex, containing a subset of other emotions like anger, hurt, sadness, and probably many others too subtle to identify.

The latter has helped me to overcome disappointments and negative situations in a healthy way.

The challenge of disappointment allows me to practice living closer to my values, and stops me from being swallowed up by it.

This step is a lifelong challenge and fundamental to dealing with disappointment.

I will be disappointed, I will disappoint, you will be disappointed, and you will disappoint. Practice acceptance and we may suffer less as it is happening and notice the good things in life more.
