  posted by: Amber Ford



How to Deal with Disappointment in a RelationshipWhen you enter a relationship, you actually set your standards. Once they are not met, you get disappointed. The truth is that you don’t get everything that you want. Most of the time, you get what you don’t expect. You get what you dislike the most. That is how ironic life is. If there are disappointments in your current relationship, you are left with one thing, that is, to deal with them. How are you going to do it? We’ve got some tips on how to deal with disappointment in a relationship.

  • Realize the disappointment. What is so disappointing in your relationship? Do you think you have to deal with it or just let it pass and be realistic? Think about it.
  • Stay positive. Look at the other side of your disappointment. Remember that there are always two sides of the coin. The other side might have positive impact on your relationship. Why don’t you deal with that particular side? Your positive thoughts can actually help you with your problem.
  • Understand why you feel this way. Try to reflect on yourself. Where is the disappointment coming from? Did you set very high expectations and now you cannot accept that you actually failed? Did your too much expectation start to slap you on the face?
  • Be patient. When you experience such problem, it doesn’t mean that you are a loser already. In due time, you will have the answers. Practice the virtue of patience.

You should learn the lesson there. It is better to have low standards and be surprised/ overwhelmed than to have high standards and be disappointed. At the moment, you have to deal with your current situation. The challenge lies on how you handle it.
