Every one of us has been disappointed by a family member, friend or work colleague.
And sometimes, we even disappoint ourselves.
When we are upset about how something turned out in our lives, it is easy to blame others or ourselves for being careless. We also assume that the other person did not think about our feelings or we were dumb in not predicting a certain outcome.
But blaming others for how our lives turned out or blaming ourselves for not being a psychic does not make us feel better about how things turned out.
