Coping With Disappointments…

One of the many beauties of writing for me is that its a form of release, especially when I am unhappy and feeling down. I woke up this morning to a happening  that has changed the course of things around me for a long time to come, and I am unhappy about it. Surprisingly, I have not shed a tear.

Somehow, I am convinced that everything will work out just fine in the end and this assurance comes from the fact that I know beyond reasonable doubt that God in His infinite sovereignty will sort us out and that this too will pass. That is my coping mechanism, its how I deal with disappointments. I remind myself that no matter how bad the situation might be or how hard it may seem, no matter how blurry my vision might be and how many tears I have cried, Its important to focus on the big picture and not to lose sight of what will be.

I don’t know what your coping mechanisms are or how you deal with disappointments, but I would like to know. I need reminders that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Be kind enough to share with me your coping mechanisms, I need all the help I can get.
