Healing from disappointment

How do you move forward from disappointment?  Is it possible? Today I was very angry about an issue.  After whining, complaining, venting, and feeling more anger, I realized I did not have a word for this issue for a very long time.  For years.  Twenty years. I could list the other areas of my life this issue triggered again and again.  The word is disappointment.  On the flip side of it is acceptance.  Getting angry and going into a tailspin about issues have not helped me to heal, only further delayed it.  So today I accept and own up to expectation I placed in an outcome, person, situation and circumstance.  I have been carrying this around way too long. (Hmm, might be the reason for the excess weight too). Being angry was a natural response to the pain and I felt entitled.  Today I got vulnerable and just simply expressed I was disappointed.  It was a huge burden lifted. I didn’t even know it was gonna come out of my mouth because I had not been able to articulate what it was for all these years. Today, I released it.  Today I am no longer chained.  Today I accepted that the disappointment happened.  Today I move forward… I am free.
