“Sometimes it is our expectations that cause us heartache” — Lara

Did you know that there are two types of disappointment?  

The kind that is your responsibility and that you need to reckon with and make amends for and the kind that does not belong to you and sprouts from others’ expectations of you.

Nobody likes that sinking feeling you get in your gut when you have disappointed someone, yet it is a feeling we have all had. 

So what do you do when someone is disappointed in you? Tune in and find out.

What you’ll hear on today’s episode:

  • The disappointment you are responsible for
  • When someone’s disappointment is all about them
  • How expectations impact disappointment
  • How to determine your responsibility
  • What to do with all the feels
  • Emotions and manipulation
  • Your body’s reaction
