Feeling disappointed and then accepting it is one of life’s many challenges.
Commonly appearing as a person letting us down, or something we hadn’t anticipated, disappointment is part of who we are.
Sometimes it just hits without warning, and we feel like we’re wading through mud cloaked in a dark cloud of heaviness.
It can arrive unexpectedly and stay longer than required.
It is not welcome, was not invited and yet is parked in our lounge, just daring us to kick it out.
So many times, we want to change our reality from what is actually happening to something else. Our ‘what is’ to ‘what if’ becomes a place we’re often found but it creates disharmony and ends up robbing us.
The problem is we miss out on appreciating what is happening here and how, because we don’t like it, didn’t ask for it and want a refund.
I have heard that friendship is in our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
Most of us have people that fall into these categories and know what it means to be a friend to someone. I’m so grateful to have the wonderful friends in my life that I do, I try not to take them for granted and sometimes I get it right, and sometimes I don’t. My true friends accept me regardless, others don’t and therein lies the lesson.
