Disappointment

Today I felt disappointment deep and distressing.

Meaning: sadness or displeasure caused by the non-fulfilment of one’s hopes or expectations.

Feelings of being taken for granted, and not being valued.

Thesaurus gives a whole bunch of synonyms:

  • defeated
  • lost
  • failure
  • mistake
  • bitter pill
  • setback

I related to all of the above. I’m thinking I need to snap out of it and think of the antonyms:

  • achievement
  • attainment
  • blessing
  • triumph
  • delight
  • miracle

Beaton from Becoming the Muse posted these true words yesterday…

“The only way to break out of it is break out of it and really succeed you have to make a conscious choice to do so, be proactive, use what you have— believe in yourself, have a plan, and go get it.”

…they’re keeping me going, planning, being proactive and the most difficult, believing in myself. Yes, believing in myself is the difference that will make the difference.
