There are times when family affairs disappoint you. On page 79 ‘Outside the Box’, there are five suggestions on how to handle disappointment. What do you think of each suggestion? If you do not have issues that are family related (include the wider family, adoptive family, guardian), consider other disappointments in your life with other people who are supposedly close to you.
I think the first suggestion would work well with everyone, however, it would only be temporary and the person would be disappointed again after a while. The second suggestion would work better than the first as all things have a positive side and by looking at the positive side of things, we would not be as disappointed as before. I find the third suggestion a bit useless as even if we knew that everyone faces disappointment, this would not make us any more happier. The fourth suggestion might or might not work as it depends on the person and the situation as sometimes, talking about the incident would only make us more disappointed. The fifth and last suggestion would work for most people as if we take things into perspective, we would be able to be thankful for at least 1 thing everyday, which would make us feel blessed and fortunate.
