When someone tells you that they’re disappointed in you it is important to assess if their expectations are reasonable. If you have a relationship with someone in your life is who manipulative, difficult and constantly looking for attention, then you will have a very different response then you would to someone who truly cares about you.
If the person who called you a disappointment has sound expectations and you didn’t live up to your obligations, you need to suck it up, own it, apologize and try to do better next time.
Don’t blindly accept negative feedback from people and accept it as the truth, always consider the source. I once worked for a woman who was bat shit crazy, she would get all wound up about situations and give her staff horrendously negative feedback that was totally unwarranted. Her sorry ass was eventually fired from the company, I guess management finally figured out that she was a raving lunatic. Whenever she gave her staff negative feedback her staff just took it with a grain of salt.
