When you didn't get what you really, really wanted, how did you deal with the disappointment?
This may sound trivial, but it’s a small example of what I’m interested in. My teams just lost some very big games, and when that happens, I feel a kind of anxious hollow inside. It’s frustrating, and I can’t do a darn thing about it.
But what about life’s more serious disappointments and frustrations? Can you describe one of those moments in your life and how you felt and what you did? How long did it take you to get over the disappointment? What did you do to try to make the frustration diminish faster? What have you learned about dealing with the major disappointments of life?
