I had to take one of my 15-minute breaks this morning.
Disappointment is the feeling of dissatisfaction that follows the failure of expectations to manifest. Similar to regret, it differs in that the individual feeling regret focuses primarily on the personal choices that contributed to a poor outcome, while the individual feeling disappointment focuses on the outcome itself. It is a source of psychological stress. The study of disappointment—its causes, impact and the degree to which individual decisions are motivated by a desire to avoid it—is a focus in the field of decision analysis, as disappointment is one of two primary emotions involved in decision-making.
That’s it exactly…I’m stressed-out, I’m disappointed and I feel regretful. I made some decisions that are not working out well and I’m disappointed that I was so wrong about the outcome. Even though I’m a risk-taker, I’m also a cautious person. Calculated risks are decisions I’m used to making, but when I am wrong, so very wrong I have to admit it and move on. Regrets, yea, I have a few.
