Take Off the Cloak of Disappointment

Disappointment is a prison of our own making. Queenisms are original, trademarked inspirational posts by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. All rights reserved. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

Disappointment weighs heavily on us, pulling us down into a funk and whispering “you’re not worthy,” in our ear. Disappointment is a dissembler. It’s really “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve” in disguise. These are the building blocks of fear and unhappiness. We are all, on occasion, disappointed.

  • We’re disappointed in ourselves for choices we’ve made. Forgive yourself.
  • We’re disappointed in others for not being “who we thought they were.” Forgive yourself.
  • We’re disappointed about the circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment. Forgive yourself.
  • We’re disappointed that our future choices seem limited. They are not. You are mistaken. Forgive yourself.

Do you see a pattern here? Disappointment must be felt and released so we can move on. Sitting in disappointment is a prison of our own making. We have the key to the cell door. We can choose to forgive ourselves and step out.

    Thank you so much! You are spot on today with your e-mail! Disappointment is what I see myself currently experiencing. Now, forgiveness of self is the answer in order to move on, unencumbered. Wow. * smiles *

    Thank you for reminding me that I need to let go of regrets over choices made and the effects they had on others, especially my children. I am very fortunate that they are present and loving toward me; now I need to be the same for myself. Very glad I stopped to open your email today.
