“There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.”
– Jane Austen “Mansfield Park”
Disappointment leads to no future expectations, welcome to the definition of my family. I have come to not expect celebrations or anything from them because to be honest the last time I did I got highly disappointed again again, and again. Disappointment was the definition of my childhood and is a major factor in my adult personality. Thank you family for being so damn dysfunctional. Thank you.
