Reacting to Disappointment or Rejection

One of the Dalai Lama's quotes that resonates:

"Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck".

This may be difficult to remember when you have just suffered disappointment or rejection but remind yourself:
- Later you may discover that the event or relationship that did not happen wasn't quite so wonderful after all
- Or maybe you will start to pursue a different path that turns out to be very productive.

The Dalai Lama does say sometimes, so of course it is possible that if you had got what you wanted it would have been good. You may never know. But even then, unless you can do something to change the situation, the best thing may be to accept what has happened and move on. Best of luck!
