Gain victory over disappointment

From the April 2, 2018 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


How do we overcome the sting of disappointment—whether it be that we didn’t get a particular hoped-for job, or a close relationship breaks up, or we didn’t achieve the success in school or work for which we’d really striven? When things go wrong, big or small, there may come a temptation to just get mad or feel we are not worthy of love or anything good—and then, we feel stuck. I’ll never forget an acquaintance of mine sharing that his score on his first engineering midterm in college was 12 percent.
