Disappointment

In my eyes, the word “disappointment” doesn’t sound damaging. It’s just  sad. But disppointment can be the most destructive and long-lasting emotion clouding relationships for hours, days, months and years.

Today I was disappointed both by others and myself and I’m fighting to cling on to the positives rather than sink with the negatives. It’s hard when someone lets you down and fails to meet your expectations especially when you don’t expect much to start with. It’s even harder to realise that you have let someone else down despite your best efforts.

Tomorrow is another day with new challenges and perhaps I will be able to atone for my disppointments.

I always try to give 100% and therein lies the problem.

I expect everyone else to do the same.

This is unrealistic and I understand that but it’s hard to reconcile sometimes.

Here’s to tomorrow.

Illusion

Illusion. Something that a person wrongly supposes to exist. A false belief about the nature of something.

Illusionist. A person who produces illusions. A conjuror.

Right on both counts but as with many illusions, when you discover how they are carried out, a tad disappointing. Empty. Lacking in substance. Devoid of conviction. False.

Shame.
