How I handle disappointments

Basically, I don't handle them myself for sure.


Every time we make an effort to better ourselves unselfishly (i.e. for the benefit of others) then we shouldn't be ashamed if we fall short sometimes.


God and people are not out to get you.


There is always a lesson to be learned from first, making an effort to succeed, and then from the success or disappointment that may accompany you on your journey.


Have you recently succeeded?


If so, then I congratulate you. What did you learn from that success?


Have you recently been disappointed?


Then you have my sincere sympathies. Believe me I have been there too.


I take it as an opportunity to recognize more clearly what I am good at and focus on that.



Where is Christ in all this?


Well I suspect that He is smiling gently and encouraging you to be kind to yourself and others and when you are able, to pick up your cross once more and join the rest of believing humanity that choose to follow Him.


Believe me, you are not alone.


You are never alone.


Rest a bit and carry on with living a life well lived.


A life well lived for the sake and benefit of others.
