There are times when family affairs disappoint you. On page 79 ‘Outside the Box’, there are four 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.
*To answer the above question, you could consider if you agree each of the suggestions and decide if they could really be useful in helping you to get over your disappointment(s) with your siblings/parents/cousins/guardians, etc.
I believe that there’s more than two side of things. By doing the thing that makes you feel good about yourself might calm you for a while, but soon, the disappointment would come and haunt you again. Thats why if everything lead to the negative side, some people prefer to be “neutral” this effect denies all emotion and focus nothing at all. This is pretty scary. A journal may make you realize your life is actually a blessing in disguise. However as referred to the previous point, sadness stays longer than happiness.
