課文:

“Dad, are you ready to go to the park?”

“Rose, I’m sorry, I can’t go today.”

“But, Dad, you promised!”

“I know, Rose, but I am too busy today.”

Rose sobbed as she walked out of the room.

Just like Rose, we all experience disappointments in life, and they are never easy. When you get disappointed, what do you do? Pout? Get angry? Feel depressed? These are natural reactions when you face disappointment. But there are better ways to deal with it.

pout:噘嘴、嘟嘴
depressed:夏鬱的、沮喪的
depress:使沮喪
depressing:令人沮喪的
reaction:反應

Coping with disappointment

Disappointment is a real emotion, so allow yourself to feel it. Take a certain amount of time to feel hurt, sad or upset. Find a parent, friend or mentor and share your disappointment with them. Or write your thoughts and feelings of frustration down on paper.

cope:妥善處理、妥善因應、成功的對付、應付、對抗
mentor:良師益友
frustration:挫折、挫敗、失意
frustrate:使沮喪

Look at the Big Picture

A disappointment can seem huge at first. But after you’ve expressed your hurt, look at the big picture. How much will this disappointment really affect you tomorrow, next week or next year?

big picture:大局
huge:龐大的、巨大的、非常的


文法:
take a certain amount of time to
…(花一段時間去做…)

特別補充:
detail-oriented person
:注重細節的人
not seeing the forest for the trees:見樹不見林
