Dealing with Disappointment
“Don’t let today’s disappointments cast a shadow on tomorrow’s dreams.” ~Unknown
I have to say that I was disappointed to see the Presidential race end with four more years of the same Presidential leadership we have had as it causes me HUGE concerns for the economic future of our country. I struggle to see how our country can sustain four more years the same problems, and so to me, this loss was a very tough loss indeed.
Even though I am sad about Mitt Romney’s loss, I for one, do not think it is appropriate to trash talk anyone who was chosen to hold the office of “President of the U.S.” – Even if the person who wins the Presidency isn’t the person I voted for, they are still the President of our country, and I believe that we have a duty to show respect for the position, whether or not we respect the individual that holds the position. Because of this I will refrain from saying any negative comments about the President. I just pray that the President will recognize the changes that he needs to make in order to lead the country in a better direction, and I pray he will have the courage to actually do the right things. All Americans should be praying for that. We desperately need it.
As disappointing as the results of this election were, the results are what they are, and at this point I have to remind myself that we cannot change the past, we can only move forward into the future and do the best we can with the situation as it is. We need to do the best we can to pull our country together. It was clear from the way the election votes came out that we are a country strongly divided. Somehow we need to find ways to remember that we should all have the same end goals in mind of improving our economy, improving our security, and protecting our liberty. We have to work together if we want things to improve and I really hope we will see that happen more in our countries leaders moving forward. I personally refuse to lose hope for the future, even if it seems a little bleak right now. I still believe in America and all that it stands for. I still believe we are meant to be One Nation Under God, even if many people seem to have forgotten that. We need to do the best we can to support our country coming back together again. We all need to continue to have hope for the future…
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
