Experiencing a disappointment in a relationship is not a personal failure or an indication that we are not worthy. Every person who has ever lived has experienced relationship disappointment at some time or another.
Relationship disappointment is common. This is true because every person has a unique manner of thinking, behaving, and doing things. There will always be times of frustration and disappointment, even in the most perfect love stories.
Let’s look at how to cope with disappointment in relationships, including how to avoid it, manage it, and get past it.
Frustration and disappointment result from unmet expecations. There are various types of expecations and many expectations vary from person to person. The expectations that we hold for others are as unique as each of our individual personalities.
According to Anchorlightthearapy.com, some (not an all inclusive list) unrealistic expectations for a relationship are:
There are never disagreements in a healthy relationship.
Being able to know what each other is thinking or feeling without discussing it.
That both partners will be in the mood for sex on a frequent basis.
No friends of the gender they are attracted to.
Expecting that all free time will be spent together
There are occasions when one partner may unwittingly act in ways that can irritate the other. Expecting them to change their personality.
You can change your expectations to avoid being let down by your relationship. That does not mean to have no expectationn, but rather change your perspective on your partner. Instead of expecting them to behave in a particular manner that is far different from their genuine baseline personality, start accepting them for who they are and working with that.
To put yourself in the best possible postion to experience as little disappointment as possible, be specific about your “partner wish list.” If people you meet fail to meet these expections, then it is best that you not pursue a relationship.
As an example, here are some qualities that you might be looking for:
Lives wihin a specific distance or driving time
Similar education to yours
Emotionally and sexually appealing
The idea is not to use this list, but to come up with your own based on who you are.
When you do experience disappointment, remember we all do, here are some things you need to consider as you attempt to improve the situatioin move past it or move on from the relationship.
Communicate with your partner about what has disappointed you and what you were expecting
Hold the discussion when you are both calm, rested, comfortable, and not subject to any distractions.
Focus on the source of disappointment you are experiencing, don’t bring up previous grievances.
The purpose of the discussion is not to detemine a winner and a loser. You very likely will need to compromise some of your own personal expectiaons if your purpose is to keep the relationship strong.
Don’t assume that your partner’s view of the world should match yours. You need to talk through the situation to learn how each other sees the problem.
Don’t base your feeling of self-worth and happiness on the actions or opinions of others even if you are married.
If you move forward, set an example in the relationship for how you want it to be.
