In our lifetime we have all experienced disappointments, failures, and heartbreak. My grandparents generation use to say if you have not experience any of these emotions then keep on living. Unfortunately, disappointments, failures, and heartbreak are all a part of life and to be honest no one wants to go through these emotions. So, here is 3 Tips On How To Deal With Disappointment:
Tip 1: Be Honest With Yourself About Your Feelings.
Do not suppress your feelings but confront them. It is not always easy to be honest with yourself about how you feel. But, when you are honest, that's when the healing can begin.
Tip 2: Give Your Disappointment To God And Cast It On Him.
One of my many favorite scriptures from the bible is 1Peter 5:7. It says "Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." (NLT) The best thing you can do while dealing with heartbreak and disappointment is run to your Heavenly Father with your heavy heart. When you cast your cares, disappointment, failure, and heartbreak on Him then you allow Him to comfort your heart.
Tip 3: Do Not Isolate Yourself.
It is very important that we do not isolate ourselves when we are dealing with disappointment and heartbreak. Sometimes we have the tendency to isolate ourselves from God and people. When you isolate yourself from God you allow the enemy to get a foothold in your mind by putting thoughts in your head that is contrary to what God has spoken over your life. I want to encourage you to cling to God while dealing with the hurt of disappointment and have godly friends around you in order to lift your spirit up.
In conclusion, while no one wants to go through the experience of having your heart broken or being let down, God can still use it for your good and for His glory.
And we know that God causes everything to work together[m] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (Romans 8:28 NLT)
