How do you recover from dashed expectations and violated ethics??

People can so easily disappoint us especially when we have high expectations of their behavior. And, what if added to being disappointed, you find out that their ethics are bent sideways from what is needed? I believe when we are this disappointed, it can take hours and maybe days to recover – to get back to our easy midline of working the work and doing what we do well.

So what are we to do for ourselves and our recovery when these kinds of situations show up?

  • Breathe deeply and often
  • Write about what the offense is and what is bothering you
  • Decide, really decide, if you need to do or say anything other than a good angry journal entry or two for your eyes only
  • Take action based on your ethical thoughts and outcomes needed

When you are truly weighed down by circumstances that are causing you to be sad and/or angry, take care of you first. Review the incident and then take care of the next steps with care.

May I help?
