Living in a generation where disappointment is much too common is a very unsettling thing.
The word disappointment creeps over us like dawn creeps on those who are unable to sleep at night.
It burns us from within, melting our insides.
There is no way to stop the fire from spreading as the flames feed hungrily on our minds and eat at our bones.
It’s that queasy feeling you get in your stomach after hearing that some boy was just using you to get a stupid favor.
It’s that moment when you realize who your true friends are.
What you once thought was a rainbow is now a cloud of dust as you see someone’s true colors begin to unfold.
It’s an anchor holding you down on the ocean floor, leaving you to drown and squabble for air as you realize you were the one to blame for your sorrow.
You have no control over disappointment because it is something that we do not expect.
We can disappoint ourselves just as well as anyone else can disappoint us. Whether we accidentally disappoint ourselves, or someone disappoints us, disappointment is a bitter feeling.
It happens suddenly and in a flash before you can even register the harm that has been done to your hopeless little body and mind.
Disappointment distorts us and makes us fear the unknown,
but the unknown is one of the most beautiful things in the world.
If only we could learn to see it that way.
The unknown is full of secrets, mystery, adventure, and yes, disappointment…
but that is what makes life worthwhile.
The unknown is our experiences that are yet to come.
Some may be good, some may be bad,
but that is the magic of the unknown.
We mustn’t fear the unknown.
Instead we must dive into it head on and be willing to take risks.
Because sometimes, disappointment simply arises from within by the lack of stepping out of our comfort zone and going after what we want.
You might try something and fail at it, which leaves you disappointed.
But if you do not try something you want to, then you are still left disappointed because you aren’t pursuing what you want.
Either way, you may be left disappointed so why not go after what you want?
Don’t be disappointed because you failed.
Instead, you should be disappointed only if you don’t try.
Failure is a part of learning and helps us to grow into stronger beings.
Don’t be afraid of it.
Chase after the unknown, embrace it, and simply learn from what is to come.
Disappointment is a part of life.
Sometimes the things we go through that leave us disappointed make us better people – more passionate, more caring. We may view things or people differently and change our ways for the better.
So, in fact, disappointment is a beautiful thing.
It is one of the few things that can help shape us into the people we are.
If we view it as a positive thing, we can only grow from the disappointment.
It’s about turning negative situations into positive situations.
It’s all about perspective, and I hope that you channel all the disappointment in your life into something beautiful.
