“Disappointments are to the soul what a thunderstorm is to the air.” – Friedrich Schiller

What value does disappointments hold in our life?
To me to be disappointed is to get something other than what I expected, but why should I expect anything at all? There is no way for me to know what another person is going to do, say or feel all I can do is accept or not what is offered to me.

I believe we should have goals in life and work towards them the best we can but the outcome could be so many things and we need to work with what it becomes. There are many routes to the same destination and different vehicles we can utilize to get to where we want to go, each person will pick the one suited to them. To be disappointed on someone just because they are not moving along at the speed and manner you can understand doesn’t mean that person is never going to make it. Judging never brings the best out in people but love and patience does. We all want to be the best that we can be but unfortunately not everyone can appreciate our struggles and efforts as we try to accomplish the task.

Moving along what life has to offer -or take from us- is part of the rewards and challenges we need to face. When there is nothing in our power to change our circumstances it is best to work with what we have. Going into despair is to give away our power and we become defenseless.
