Forming complex relationships with other people and not encountering disappointment is impossible.
Someone might forget it’s your special day or even your partner puts friends before you. Whatever the case, and no matter how big or small it is, it’s important to move forward.
Put Yourself In Their Shoes
One way to reconnect with a loved one after disappointment is to reflect on that person’s circumstances. This exercise promotes empathy, which can counteract feelings of betrayal and disappointment. In fact, psychologist Guy Winch calls sympathy and empathy “the antidote to anger and frustration.”
Essentially, if you’re recalling a lesson in kindergarten when your teacher encouraged you to walk a mile in a
classmate’s shoes. When you frame your loved one’s act in the context of his or her struggles, you might find
the strength to forgive and move on.
You get too close to the situation after a loved one disappoints you. You are vulnerable to the related
emotions that can hit you like a flood and making you incapable of deciding good choices and reaching
objective conclusions. Consider booking psychic readings online or confiding in a trusted friend.
Use this opportunity to vent your frustrations, but don’t forget to listen to the other person. Because he or
she is not as invested in the situation, you might get a helpful insight from the conversation.
Bridging the Gap
It takes time to recover from disappointment. Whether it’s a result of an unintentional insult or something more serious such as infidelity. You should decide first that you want to save the relationship; Then, create a list of steps you need to do to repair it.
Communication offers the healthiest coping mechanism. Talking to your loved one about how you feel. Leave accusatory statements out of the equation. Instead, focus on why you feel the way you do and how you would like to prevent the problem from occurring again in the future. Spending time together can help relieve the pain and re-establish the foundation of your relationship again.
Knowing Yourself Better
Disappointment often have two sides when it comes to feelings: One is what the other person did and second
is how you processed that information. It helps to figure out why you took such offense, especially if it was not serious. It doesn’t mean it’s your fault, simply it’s an opportunity to know yourself better and to gain how to control over your emotions.
For instance, maybe you got disappointed in your partner because he or she made a thoughtless comment about your appearance. Perhaps you’ve always struggled with your own self-image, so the remark cut particularly deep. Acknowledging your own feelings can help you figure out how to approach the situation.
Disappointment comes in all strengths and flavors. If you got disappointed by your loved one, analyze the situation with a clear head or consult a psychic hotline for guidance. Assuming you believe in the relationship and hope to save it, take a proactive approach to honoring your own emotions and repairing the damage with the other person.
