6 Things to Do When You Are Disappointed in Your Life

Tears streamed down my cheeks. My daughter walked up to me as I tried to dry my face. “Mom are you okay?” she asked. “Yes, sweetie. I just need a minute.” The past several months had been filled with personal disappointments. I was physically and emotionally exhausted.

Later that evening, my husband and I had a long talk. Yes, I had faced challenges, but I needed to make some changes. What my husband lovingly reminded me is that disappointments are part of life.

Here are some ways I started framing my mindset when I was disappointed with my life.
