I’m always disappointed when a liar’s pants don’t catch fire. Every time you think about her, remind yourself that if she wanted to talk to you, she would. Don’t call her up and ask if she saw your texts, of course she did. She doesn’t just like you like that. Move on man. Then just when you’re about to heal, she’ll hit you up with a “hey big head” and you’re right back in the trenches. Seek help and cut ties. Save yourself more disappointment. It’s the hope that kills.
Disappointment is running into a wall with an erection and breaking your nose. It’s just the action of your brain readjusting itself to the reality that things are not the way you thought they were. I’m not funny. People think that because my posts are funny, I’ll be funny in real life. It’s the inevitable disappointment of meeting me. Life is throwing hands and I can’t defend myself for shit. So if you see me, squeeze a $100 note into my hand. And don’t expect any jokes.
Sometimes we create our own heartbreak through expectation. Never get too attached to anyone, it will lead to expectations and expectations always lead to disappointments. Anticipate everything, expect nothing. After being disappointed so many times, you start to lose hope in everything. As a rule, a beautiful woman is a terrible disappointment. Reason why I only go for medium ugly women. I like that we say “oh man” to express disappointment. Because men are disappointing. Shame on you though.
Assuming is the root of all disappointments. Before you “assume” try this crazy method of “asking”. When you assume, you make an ass out of you and me. Most of us make assumptions about how someone will relate to us, and they are often unfounded. Personally, I make assumptions that everyone sees life the way I do, and I’ve still not been completely cured. Now, I try not to make assumptions unless I know the whole story, and even then sometimes, I’m still in the wrong. When in doubt, ask the person directly. It does help if you also happen to be holding a sharp object at the time of asking.
Sometimes when you get disappointment it makes you stronger. When you learn to Accept instead of Expect, you’ll have fewer disappointments. Disappointments are a result of failed expectations. To have fewer disappointments, either expect less from other people or demand more from yourself. Seeing a leaf that looks very crunchy, but when you step on it, it does nothing? That’s real disappointment right there. My expectations were reduced to zero when I turned 21. Everything since then has been a bonus.
No matter how low I lower the bar of expectation, some people manage to roll right under it. Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them. It really sucks. Disappointment is sort of bankruptcy. Bankruptcy of the soul that expends too much on hope and expectation. Nothing lasts forever. Forever is a lie. All we have is what’s in between hello and goodbye. Life in itself is a long preparation for something that never happens.
Disappointment is the greatest gift of all. Your best successes come right after your greatest disappointments. So if you’re going through a rough patch, keep your head up, you’re about to win the lottery. Now when this happens, and I firmly believe it will, do remember to cut me a check for calling it. Things are as they are, we suffer because we imagined different. This too shall pass. It might pass like a kidney stone. But it will pass. At the end of the day, what doesn’t kill you?
