Coping with Disappointment

Disappointment is normal in life, but it shouldn’t dictate your mood or decisions.

Disappointment is a part of life, although some types of disappointment carry much more weight than others. For example, learning that the store stopped carrying your favorite brand of yogurt should not be as difficult to cope with as learning that you did not get the promotion you’d spent hours working for. However, if you learn to cope with the small disappointing moments in life, this can help you to cope with larger disappointments, too.

1. Accept Your Position

The first thing that can help you to cope with disappointment is to define and accept your position. For example, is the thing that you are disappointed about something that you can control? In many cases, we are disappointed by the actions or feelings of others that are beyond our control. Accept your position – if it is beyond your control, move on; if not, refocus to determine whether or not there is something you can do to change your situation.

2. Review Your Expectations

Another way to cope with disappointment is to review your own expectations surrounding the disappointing event. When you review your expectations, you may find that your expectations were unrealistic, to begin with. This can make the disappointment easier to bear, or may even change your mind about how disappointing it really is.

3. Focus on the Future

You should take a moment to acknowledge a disappointment and process any feelings related to it, but then you should move forward. If you spend too much time focusing on your loss or bad feelings, you won’t spend enough energy focusing on the future and how to move forward. The future should be your priority, not hanging on to feelings about the past.
