ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Disposition is a big word that means the way someone feels inside and the way they act because of those feelings. Imagine a big glass of lemonade - when it's sweet and yummy, you feel happy and want to drink more. But if it's sour and yucky, you might make a funny face and not want to drink any more. In the same way, your disposition can be sweet and happy or sour and grumpy. It can change based on what's happening around you, like if you get a hug or a toy you really like, or if you have to do something you don't want to do. But it's important to remember that even when things aren't going the way you want them to, you can choose to have a positive disposition and try to be kind and patient with yourself and others.
