Appraisals of life's problems
Coping effectively with life's problems and failures requires realistic expectations. Psychologists call these expectations and judgements “appraisals”.
Life events, such as traffic bottlenecks or the boss's gruff voice, aren't a problem unless we appraise them as such. Life is never perfect and, to some degree, hassles and problems are a part of normal everyday life. If our appraisals are realistic, we are better able to react to day-to-day life events with a sense of proportion.
The appraisals we make are a product of our belief system. If we hold unrealistic, inflexible beliefs then our appraisals may not be the most appropriate for the situation (178).
