Oh No! – The Psychology of Disappointment

All of us have experienced that sinking feeling in the pit of our stomach called disappointment, at some time or the other. Disappointments have to do with loss or failed expectations. It gets even worse if it’s caused by someone really close to us letting us down.

It’s an emotion, which sometimes gives way to rage and at other times, apathy. Both rage and apathy bring our normal productive lives to a grinding halt. In order to control it, we first need to understand the emotion well enough. This infographic by BestPsychologyDegrees illustrates the science behind the emotion and how you can make subtle changes to avoid feeling completely letdown.
