When you’ve been disappointed a lot, you no longer believe what people say. Although they may have meant every word they spoke, your defense mechanism is just to believe it’s all a lie.
When you’ve been disappointed a lot, you stop yourself from getting excited when things are coming together. You’re used to things coming together only for them to fall apartment moments later.
When you’ve been disappointed a lot, you assume the worst in every situation because it’s better than expecting the best and then getting faced with more disappointment.
I know what it’s like to be disappointed a lot. I know what it’s like to not want to have hope for anything because you’ve been let down by everything. I know what it’s like to be let down by the people who were supposed to lift you up.
I know exactly what you are feeling, which is why I must tell you this. You can’t let disappointment win! You can’t let disappointment dictate how you operate in the world. You can’t let disappointment cause you to live in a perpetual state of expecting the worst.
You must make a different decision. Instead of operating in a frame of mind that believes “nothing works out for me,” I want you to believe that EVERYTHING works out for you! You’ve got this!
