Disappointment is what we feel when life (people, events, our circumstances) does not meet our expectations and we feel “displeasure”. Learning how to “own” we are creating this emotion and feel disappointment is actually a very powerful tool to anchor us to show up calmly and securely for our children.
It’s important to let our children feel disappointed (and not try to make them immediately feel better) so they learn how to be emotionally mature humans. Listen as Heidi gives many examples of how and why to feel disappointment…. which actually helps us feel better, sooner.
