Guess I'm feeling disappointed this morning, and that's not a fun feeling. The reason isn't necessary to reveal, but disappointment seems like a good topic to write about.
As a little girl, I remember being disappointed by the weather. If our family of four had a fishing day planned and we woke up to a thunderstorm, I was so disappointed. When I'd come home from school and daddy had sold our lambs, I'd be more than disappointed. If I didn't get to eat the gizzard out of a fried chicken, I'd be disappointed. Childhood was one long string of disappointments.
My mom taught me not to make plans and bank on them.....if you don't plan, you won't be disappointed was her philosophy. There's a ton of truth in this, and maybe that's why I try to leave room for the unexpected to happen. Still, a person is sometimes let down no matter what.
If we share our troubles with someone else, that person won't ever forget what we tell them. We will. They won't. It's best to wait out the adverse emotion and let it dissolve into nothingness.
