Disappointment is another thing that we all experience at some time or another. We often meet disappointment with frustration, anger, or even sadness. However, these are not the healthiest ways for us to approach these negative feelings. One healthier way we can tackle feelings of disappointment is by expressing them. This expression does not necessarily have to be directed at the person or thing that has caused these feelings, but just getting our thoughts out there so we can -for lack of a better term- get it out of our systems, can be really helpful. Expressing our feelings about the situation can help us process what we are feeling, and may even lead to a better understanding of why we are feeling that way. If you are looking for a way to express your feeling try journaling, blogging, talking to a friend, or talking to a therapist.
If you need an outlet, or want a safe place to express and process what you are going through, therapy is a great place to look.
