Being disappointed has seemed to motivate me to make positive change in my life, for sure.The question is how is that a good thing? What kinds of good have come out of being disappointed?
I am more confident in my ability to get through difficult situations and more empathetic to others.How might you be a better person for having gotten through being disappointed?
Yes. I don't always know best. Shocker!Have things ever turned out unexpectedly better after a disappointment?
Going back to school to become an RN and changing careers.What else? Just 3 proofs.
More empathy and compassion for people struggling with situations I've been through and been disappointed by.
Motivation to do this kind of work and seek truth, because I know that true satisfaction can't really be found "out there".
I've started noticing how quickly my mind find things disappointing. Very small things that create a lot of irritation, but I can observe more now and relax. There is less of a hook. I feel much more open to the fact that if I lose something I want or don't get what I want, I'm being spared. Reality isn't against me. There is certainly a shift around this that I will continue to meditate on and have taken some of these other things to my facilitator to work on as well!How are you doing with the original idea after that? Does it still seem true?
I will post back with the stream exercise and questions.
