Ever Felt Let Down by the Person You Are Counting on? How Do You React?

We all have friends, or someone we trust more than others. We therefore, feel that, this person can be there for us during good and bad times. These can be a Brothers sisters, close relatives, our spouses, close friends, etc.
But, many times, you have heard someone saying to another, ” this shouldn’t be you”. This shows a sign of betrayal and frustration. It shows that someone was counting on you, but you have come short of their expectations. It’s shows a sign of being let down!
This has happened quite a number of times, to many people. I have also been a victim of this. Maybe you know of someone who has experienced such a situation in their lives, it could have happened to you also.
How do you handle/ react to such situations in your life?

Of course, I have been let down by people several times but I was not despaired. I kept on believing in God and also intensified efforts to avert the reoccurrence. Don’t have absolute trust in man because man is an imperfect being.

Absolutely right, I can say that everybody has experience such a situation in life, it’s very harmful and may lead you into stress if you’re not a strong and positive person.
I have experienced such a situation several times. I always think that God is the only that can let me down. I take everything in a positive way and keep on going forward.

Yes, I have experienced this situation before. Sometimes, I put too much trust and personal comfort on their acceptance for my decisions and behaviors. They turned me down in the time I needed them most.
But then I found that it was the best moment in my personal development. This is the best moment for me to rely on myself most. And it is also the best moment to understand that I must counting on myself before I count on others.

This is all to common. Its also a challenge of being a leader or a boss. Its hard to let go and put your trust in other people to do something but you have to in business otherwise your business and ultimately your wealth will not grow. You need to make sure you give them clear instructions and the tools to do the job.
If they fail then evaluate why they failed was it something you missed or just they didnt understand or just arent capable. Once you have the answer you can move forward. Either reteach them or get rid. Some relationships just arent compatible

Sometimes we put too much pressure on other people, expecting them to deliver. We become disappointed and surprised when they fail.
It is not helpful to blame them or feel that they are incompetent or trying to bring you down. To understand their failure you have to picture yourself in their shoes and understand the circumstances that led to their failure. Most of the time they just need some encouragement and a second chance to succeed.

If Jesus Christ was betrayed, who am I not to be betrayed. I am always careful when dealing with people. It is very risky to be totally dependent on human.

This kind of situation is very easy for me to handle. Positivity is my strength, for me God is the only hope and the only one who can stay with me forever. Human beings stand by you for their interests.

Every so often you get disappointed by someone you’ve put your hope and trust on. Reacting angrily will not make the situation any better. The best would be sitting down with him/her to correct what needs to be corrected.

Depending on how close that person is to you emotionally can drive your response. The closer they are or the more they mean to you the more it hurts. Dealing with it is dependent on your nature.

Kenneth has right, I have been rejected by one of my girl friend that I really loved, she insulted me, shouted on me,finally I ran away.
After that I break up with him, kept going foward and forgot about her. Today I’m dating with a humble, beautiful, nice lovely girlfriend who will probably be the Mother of my children. We are having fun and wonderful life together.

Sometimes you just have to adjust your expectations of other people. Some will always let you down knowingly or not.
