Dealing with Life's Disappointments
Failures in some convoluted form are an integral part of life. We have to go through this to fully appreciate the successes that we have.
It’s easy to become discouraged when we encounter setbacks, to lose trust in ourselves and the people around us. Eventually, we have to come out of this hole and start rebuilding our lives. We’re left with no choice but to do this or else all our financial reserves go down the drain. Quite often the only way out of a situation is to simply trudge through it. As bad as things can be,nothing is worth dying for.
If we were to become paralyzed and contemptuous, we will only exacerbate the already glum situation. It’s throwing another log to the fire, and this will continue on and on unless we choose to put a stop to it. This vicious cycle of self-imposed ruin is something that we have to overcome.
Life is a journey of self-evolvement, and each problem we resolve can make us stronger and more resilient. We have to simply embrace life to learn how to face adversities. No matter how good or bad a situation may be, it will eventually end.
Life is all about growth through a variety of experiences. We can choose resistance or we can choose acceptance. Choosing acceptance allows us to embrace the inherent lessons along the way.
There are millions of others who are in the same boat. Everyone has to deal with these same things and we are never alone when we suffer. Let us share the burdens that we carry with our friends and ask them to help us during dire times. A burden shared is a burden halved.
With this in mind, we have to know that we can be surrounded by love if we allow it.
Happiness is all about overcoming disappointments. When we ask the help of our loved ones, we also have to know that we shouldn’t hurt them along the way. We have to appreciate what they can offer and not ask for more.
Friendship is a two-way thing. As much as we expect them to protect us, we also have to do everything within our power to make life easier for them because they also have responsibilities of their own to fulfill.
Perhaps the most valuable message about disappointment sometimes is not about us at all. Sometimes the lesson learned is about inspiring others to never give up because there’s nowhere to go but up when we are at the lowest point in our lives.
