Do you get disappointed easily?

I must say there are times when I can take disappointments fairly well and other times I fall short! If you have a spate of negative events, just one more can be the last straw. Life is full of ups and downs, have to roll with the punches!

If you have the patience to wait, it normally passes overhead without much ado!

@dianadee yes I sure can wait. It was not all his fault.

To me life is like a test. If we pass the test, we will become a better human being again. So, faced all with patience and confidence in the attempt.

We get stronger by our trials that we face each day..some easier than others!

No not really. Because I only expect and demand greatness from myself not from others! I expect nothing from others. Blessings

I try not to have high expectations. I've been disappointed enough times that I try not to expect much. If I get more than I expect than it's all good. Bonus.

@dianadee I don't know. Some would say that is being pessimistic or negative.

@patgalca Sometimes to be cautious in relationships, can also be a wise move!

I agree, when you have too many negative things happening at the same time, just one more can be too much.

I do get disappointed easily, that's why I try not to expect too much.

Everyone gets disappointed. I really try not to put all my hope in people because they fail, just like me, at times.

I agree. Having thick skin in this respect is paramount. Things happen.

If one reacts too much, people learn who to offload their frustrations on. Someone told me once, that we teach people how to treat us..it works!

I have encountered so many disappointments that disappointment became a part of daily life .. so I learned to just live with it ..

I used to have a hard time with disappointments, but have learned to just take things as they come.
