7 Beautiful and Inspiring Quotes to Help you Overcome Disappointment

Letdowns and feelings of failure are a normal part of life, and whenever I need a pick-me-up, there are a few great quotes for overcoming disappointment that always help lift my spirits. Do you need a little extra encouragement this week? Here are seven inspiring quotes for overcoming disappointment that will help you feel better and get back on track in no time.

1. You Will Find That It Is Necessary to Let Things Go, Simply for The Reason That They Are Heavy

As one of my favorite quotes for overcoming disappointment, this statement reminds me that rehashing things and holding onto negative feelings are incredibly draining. Instead of dwelling on a recent letdown, make a decision to instead simply let go of your sadness and focus on all the positive things the future holds. It may be hard to do at first, but once you manage to let go, you’ll feel much lighter and freer.

2. Sometimes Good Things Fall Apart So Better Things Can Fall Together

It’s easy to beat yourself up wondering what you may have done wrong to make a situation turn out the way it did, but it’s by far better to remember that certain things are just not meant to be. In fact, losing out on one opportunity can actually open the door to many new additional ones, so keep things in perspective and never lose hope that there’s something bigger and better waiting for you.

3. Holding onto Anger Is like Drinking Poison And Expecting The Other Person to Die

Being let down by another person is always tough, especially when it’s a family member, friend or significant other you’d come to respect and trust. But as difficult as it can be to let go of your anger, it’s important to remember that by holding a grudge, you’re actually hurting yourself rather than the other person. Even if you can’t forgive or forget, vow to focus on the positive things in your life instead of letting anger consume and control you.

4. Sometimes, You Need to Step outside, Get Some Air, And Remind Yourself of Who You Are And Who You Want to Be

Many disappointments in life stem from trying to please others and live up to expectations about what we’re supposed to be, believe and do. When life gets you down, however, it’s good to take a step back and determine whether the goals you’ve been working toward are actually right for you or even reflective of the kind of life you want to live. Without a doubt, staying true to yourself and your principles is a surefire way to make life’s inevitable disappointments more manageable.

5. Too Many People Undervalue What They Are, And Overvalue What They’re Not

Like the last quote, this statement reminds me that it’s better to focus on the many strengths and positive qualities I have to share than to be hard on myself about shortcomings. As many of us have learned the hard way, you simply can’t please everyone or be all things to all people, so value who you are and focus on the positive differences your love and friendship have made in the lives of others.

6. Don’t Waste Words on People Who Deserve Your Silence. Sometimes The Most Powerful Thing You Can Say Is Nothing at All

Yet another one of the best ways to overcome disappointment and keep it from overwhelming you is to remove negative people and influences from your life. I’ve found that it’s rarely worth the energy to try to argue with or change people, so instead of allowing them to disappoint you further, spend your time and energy building relationships with those who have the ability to truly support and encourage you.

7. You Are Never Too Old to Set Another Goal Or to Dream a New Dream

Finally, when things don’t work out the way you’d planned, remember that the only true failure in life is to give up and stop striving to be your best. No matter who you are or what stage of life you’re in, it’s never too late to pursue new goals and dreams, whatever they may be. culled

    Short of words to express how I felt after going thru No 2 & 7 over & over again. Moving on in life among trial periods is the best thing we owe ourselves, sometimes where we tot are the best place to be ℓ̊Ƨ̷̜̩̌̋ not where God actually want u to be & we can only realize it when we let go off the good for the best. Steph I wish I can dream again, turn back the hands of time(crying), I would’ve been better than iam. But in ALL things, I still give God glory. Tnx my mentor, M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ super/role model. Big hugs
