Six Ways to Take Care of Yourself When People Disappoint You

Acknowledge your unmet needs

If you’re human, other people will inevitably disappoint you or let you down sometimes. Whether it’s a friend canceling arrangements at the last minute, a neighbor acting mean, family members not showing up for an important occasion, a co-worker throwing you under the bus or a partner cheating, disappointment is a fact of life.

These strategies can help you recover from your hurt and anger and move forward with confidence.
