DEALING WITH DISAPPOINTMENT

Listen Here: 

Last week my daughter, Izzy lost a tooth and I forgot to “text the tooth fairy” for not one but TWO nights to come pick it up.

For the past 4 years, the tooth fairy hasn’t ever missed a night.  Missing one night was hard on her, but TWO was heartbreaking.

I didn’t realize my text error until Izzy busted in my room the next morning with the tooth in hand.  I immediately apologized and said I’d forgotten to text.

She then said, “I just want to throw the tooth away!”  

When I asked why, she said, “I hate feeling disappointed!  I don’t want to feel this way again.”

Her response got me thinking about disappointment.

To our brains, disappointment is the WORST.  

Feeling it is avoided at all costs so much so that we’ll “throw away” things we truly want just so we don’t have to feel it. 

DEALING WITH DISAPPOINTMENT

Knowing this about the brain, I then walked my daughter through a few steps to allow her to process the disappointment.  

It took just a few minutes that were uncomfortable for her but had I NOT done that, the feelings of disappointment (and other things) would’ve likely stayed with her for days (if not a lifetime until she processed it).

Those few minutes of processing got her back on track to keeping the tooth for the tooth fairy to arrive the next night (which she did – whew) and feeling more like herself again.

It’s crazy what our brains avoid and tell us to give up just so we don’t have to feel a FEW MINUTES of pain.  

It doesn’t have to be this way.  You can deal with disappointment in a better way.

Today you’re going to learn that way.

Today you’re going to learn how to properly process disappointment so YOU never throw away your goals and dreams (and feel like crap in the process) ever again.
