Disappointment hurts more than pain…
A father’s disappointment can be a very powerful tool.
Hope is tomorrow’s veneer over today’s disappointment.
First love is first love, first marriage is first marriage, disappointment is disappointment.
Disenchantment, whether it is a minor disappointment or a major shock, is the signal that things are moving into transition in our lives.
William Throsby Bridges
Cause: Feeling let down, dissatisfied, unfulfilled or deserted.

Solutions: Share your feelings with friends, family or a counsellor.
Think about your expectations and whether or not they were unrealistic.
Don’t make big decisions until the initial hurt has passed.
Try not to blame people or lash out verbally. Forgive them.
Accept the disappointment, and don’t lose ambition.
Remember that the world is far from perfect. Try not to be bitter.
Decide to let go of the disappointment and recover.
