The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Allow Yourself to Feel

Peep the scene.

You invest time and energy into something with the hopes that it will be a success. You weigh the pros and cons, mentally preparing yourself for the worst while hoping for the best. Anxiety has you in shambles.

The countdown is over. It’s time to find out your fate…and it’s the worst case scenario.

*insert expletive of choice here*

No matter how much you prepare for it, disappointment hurts like hell. My way of dealing with disappointment was to be upset for a sec and then move on to whatever was next. That worked until this year when I realized that there’s beauty in disappointment.

The catch is, in order to experience the beauty in disappointment, I have to allow myself to feel the disappointment.

When you know better, you do better, right?

Until next time,

Joy
