Disappointment is the feeling of dissatisfaction that follows the failure of expectations or hopes to manifest. Similar to regret, it differs in that a person feeling regret focuses primarily on the personal choices that contributed to a poor outcome, while a person feeling disappointment focuses on the outcome itself. It is a source of psychological stress. The study of disappointment—its causes, impact and the degree to which individual decisions are motivated by a desire to avoid it—is a focus in the field of decision analysis, as disappointment is one of two primary emotions involved in decision-making.

This week has been one of immense disappointment to me and I think after looking at the definition of ‘Disappointment’ it indicated to me that I am under stress.   I am not able to see things clearly or manage my expectations when under stress.  And the result is usually – DISAPPOINTMENT.  And what a useless emotion that is.
What do you do to manage your expectations?
