Keeping yourself stronger: Ways to Handle Disappointment

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

When you are disappointed with something, you feel hopeless, uneasy, and looks like the fate has turned out to you. You are restless, tired, drained. It is easier to give up at this moment than to stay strong. I feel you. You are not alone. It is also good to know that you are not the onlt person that might be experiencing the situation. There are even worse than that. And what do they do? Same process as you. Don't question yourself of taking in more pressure than others because you don't really know what they are going through right now. When you are at this moment in your life, you need something or someone who will built it up for you to make you strong again. 


1. Pray. Go back where your faith is. I believe everything happening has a purpose. Check the spiritual side of the story. How did you do before everything happens? Do you earnestly pray for it? If not, why not? It is helpful to seek guidance to your next steps.

2. Cry it out. Rethink what might have gone wrong. Release the anger and tension you are feeling right now. Don't let it settle to you and took you more time to recover.

3. Find someone to talk to. Someone who is comfortable talking to you. Who doesn't thinks you are weird to say your real feelings. Who will hear you or maybe give you some advices and words you needed.

4. Keep yourself busy. Do other important things. Yes, there are! While waiting or figuring out your next steps, it will be good if you go on with your life. Eat as usual, Exercise, go on groceries, check your pets, and others. Don't separate yourself and the problem to others. Let the problem stayed as it is waiting to be solved. Not you ruining your life because of the problem.

5. Write. Help others find out that they are not alone in this hard time. You will amazed how your shared experience touched other lives or rethink of their situation. If you can't write it out, then share it with someone you trust. Just like #3

6. Plan the next steps. After one tragedy, there is the next chapter. Plan what is good for you ahead. As I said, don't settle on the same problem or situarion. Moved on and find out what's next.

True, that it is easier said than done. But, when you actually don't know what to do, it is even harder. So now, you know what to do. Recover. Try again if you need to and if the next steps came out wrong again. Refresh. Start again. Remember that everyday is a new day on you. Make a good start and try again. Now, inhale and exhale. Stay Strong, buddy!
