“He who knows himself, knows others” …..
–Charles C. Colton

There are many gifts that can come from disappointments if we are open to them …..

One such gift is the ability to help others. Having felt anger, guilt, and sorrow, we are better able to identify the same feelings in others. We can be more tolerant of others and have compassion for those with similar hurts. And, if we overcome the pain of our own disappointments, we can share the attitudes and actions that helped us grow from those hurts ….

Another gift is forgiveness. When we do not deny our pain ~ and make a concerted effort to work through our feelings of anger, rejection, and guilt ~ we gain a better perspective of ourselves and a better understanding of others. We become aware of our deepest desires and needs, our deepest insecurities and fears, our weaknesses and our strengths. When we can accept and understand our imperfect natures, we can accept the imperfections and growing pains of others ….
Today, I will ask myself: what can I do to help another; and I will use my disappointments as gifts to better understand myself as well as others. I will try to help others overcome their hurts by being open to sharing my struggles and victories with them…..
