Hi, sorry about the disappointment you feel. The idea that something you want may be attainable and being disappointed when it doesn't happen can happen over and over. You can feel disappointment and only when it prevents you from trying again will it be a problem. It's okay to get your hopes up as long as you can handle the disappointment without letting it stifle you in the future. Don't worry about remembering the lesson, we remember every time it happens but don't let it stop you from trying. Keep positive and know that something else will present itself as an opportunity and when it happens it will be worth all the trying you have done.
Glad the behavior techniques are working well, it's all about being consistent with them.
As for the flood, he won't be back in the house for a long while . There are so many still forced out of their homes, a real mess, but it will be fine, just takes time. Looking forward to season two of Midwives.
I think that this time the disappointment or feeling of it has been harder to handle, your words are encounraging though and I know that you are right,
Yes the behaviour technique worked very well.
I can't stay in chat long, but actually disappointment builds determination at times.
I am sorry to hear that his home isn't fit for living in. I hope his fortunes change soon.
yes indeed it can, I'm usually quite determined, just hoping that kicks in again as it normally would do.
Just give yourself some time, you can be disappointed, put it aside and then start looking around to see what else is out there.
Well I did for a bit as soon as I heard and then I think the disappointment really started to kick in more.
but like I say, I know you are right about needing to put it aside, especially so that I can juggle the other things that I still need to do.
or continue to get the things done that I need to do.
I tell people to have what I call a personal "pity party" for disappointments, allow yourself to feel bad for fifteen minutes and then push it away. Next day, ten minutes, then a few days of five and then just push it away!
okay, I will try that.
You can't allow yourself to get "stuck" in being disappointed. Have to deal with it and move forward without looking back.
I know you will be fine, you are a good learner.....:)
Have to go..if you want to leave more comments I will get to them after work...
