Dealing with Disappointment

August 8, 2010

in the generous life

I had a major disappointment today and I was very intentional about not taking it out on my husband. I owned that I was (really, really) sad and asked for the alone time that I needed to get myself together (I’m an introvert and I need solitude to process). After that I asked my husband for suggestions (guys love to fix things).

How do you handle disappointment? If you struggle with this, watch what you do and say and, when you are calm later, ask yourself how you would like to handle it differently next time (if it works for you, you might brain storm with your husband). Do you need to lower the volume of your voice? Change tone of voice? Seek a bit of solitude or hang with encouraging friends?  What one little thing can you do differently next time.

We know finite disappointment, but we know infinite hope.  Martin Luther King, Jr.
