Day: #04 || Alphabet : D || Theme: Emotions || Word: Disappointment
Today is the fourth day into the #AtoZChallenge and the Emotion I have chosen is DISAPPOINTMENT Yeah! Not all the times one can be in a happy state of mind. We humans always have expectations from others especially the ones we consider close to us. And there is no harm in it as far as it doesn’t break us down so bad that rising up again becomes impossible.
What exactly is the definition of Disappointment? (all my definitions are from Google *)
Today my very dear blogger friend DARSHITH, whom many of us already know, is doing a guest post on this topic for me. Thank you, Darcie, for doing the guest blog ❤ .This is what he has to say !!! Please visit his blog for some interesting posts
~~ DISAPPOINTMENT ~~
The final stage of any relationship is always DISAPPOINTMENT. You ask why? Let me explain.
When was the last time you were stood up? Or the last time your call was not received by somebody whose call you’d never miss? Or the last time you were taken as an option when you made others your first priority?
This kind of situations come & go and that’s okay. That’s life. But when we start to expect things from others(due to our good nature or because that’s how we are made), things go south for us. Disappointment is the baggage of expectations. Less the expectation, less the disappointment. That’s a pretty simple equation but then very difficult to achieve.
Life is a constant struggle of being better today than what we were yesterday. This struggle means trying to make the above equation true. Whether we achieve or not, it’s a far away thing but we always have to try.
Disappointment also stays away when we live in the moment. That’s again difficult to achieve. But we keep on trying.
I would had been really disappointed if I didn’t participate in this AtoZ challenge but I did & tried to have fewer expectations(no steep increase in views or fame) and things are looking good as of now. Everything within limits is good & so is expectations as that will keep disappointment at bay.
That’s it. It was an honor to write as a guest author here @ Life as a Potpourri. Sneha(I call her Janemann) is awesome & I am glad we both are participants of this A to Z challenge.
