Dealing with Disappointment

A recent experience got me thinking about the different ways that we can deal with disappointment.

No matter what sort of disappointment we may be feeling, the key thing is learning how to deal with it because as appealing as it sounds to transfigure into a blanket burrito, the world keeps turning, so we have to be able to pick ourselves up and keep going. So today, that’s what I’m going to be chatting about!
