Disappointments Are An Unavoidable Part Of Life

Hello loves, ❤

I am slowly learning that even if I learn how to take care of myself, even if I act strong and independent, I will always suffer from a certain amount of powerlessness. I cannot control everything. There are times when I have to rely on outside forces and those forces can easily screw me over.

I am slowly learning that, sometimes, the worst things happen to the best people. The people who have worked their asses off to get where they are today. The people who would never hurt another living soul. The people who deserve more than the bullshit hand they have been dealt.

I am slowly learning that it takes years to build a strong relationship or a successful career or a loving household, but all of that can be torn apart in a matter of seconds. It takes much more energy to create than to destroy. And it takes even more energy than that to recover from the destruction.

I am slowly learning that no matter how much I trust someone, no matter how many times they promise they will be there for me, they will still end up disappointing me from time to time. They are only human. They will make mistakes. They will hurt me without meaning to do it. They will let me down with completely different intentions.

I am slowly learning that, even when I feel comfortable in my situation, there is always a chance something horrible is lurking around the corner. I should never take my good days for granted because they could be coming to an end soon. I need to learn to appreciate today in case tomorrow my world does a 180.

I am slowly learning that disappointments are an unavoidable part of life. I cannot close off my heart to avoid heartbreak. I cannot ignore my dreams to avoid failure. I cannot stay home to avoid defeat. I cannot outrun pain. Pain is a part of life. Pain is a part of every person on this planet.

I am slowly learning that everything good comes with a risk. A risk of it ending. A risk of it not working the way I originally planned. Every time I make plans with friends, there is a chance they will cancel and disappoint me. Every time I fall in love, there is a chance they will cheat and disappoint me. Every time I land a new job, there is a chance they will fire me and disappoint me.

I am slowly learning that I am allowed to have high expectations. I should not let past disappointments stop me from looking forward to the future.

I am slowly learning to stop being so afraid of disappointment, because there is no way to avoid it. All I can do is try my hardest and hope the world repays my efforts.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

  1. This really made me think. Especially as I often feel disappointed, either of myself or of others, and this make me reconsider my way of thinking about it. Also, this is only the second post of yours that I’ve read (as I’m a newbie to blogging) and I will definitely keep reading more of yours, as I can tell the messages will be important 💓

  2. I remember when my parents said “We’re not angry, we’re just disappointed” and those words hit me like a tonne of bricks. It did however make me want to prove myself to them so there were some positives that came out of it. I’ve been disappointed so many times by the people I love but I have learnt to let it go because it takes too much of my energy to hold onto it for too long. 💛

  3. Ah, disappointments. I’ve had a few, actually, I’ve had a ton, but if I were to give up trying new things, meeting new people, I would die from boredom. I’d rather die from disappointment, if that makes sense. It isnt so much the destination, as the journey to get to where we need to be that is important.
