Disappointment - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
You can disappoint me a million times, or try to, but my appointment as the one to love and care for you comes from a higher power. So, no matter what stunts you pull, no matter what tantrums you have, I am going to be right here ready to love and care for you.
I can love you and be disappointed. I can love you and leave. I can leave you and wish you every good thing for your future... because that is what good friends do.
We emotionally appoint the ones we love to certain positions in our inner landscapes, yet were they ever asked if that was a role they could deliver on? At times we create our own disappointments - or rather their dis-appointment from these emotional roles we assigned. Other times they did take on a commitment they could not meet for reasons beyond their control. Either way, the result to the emotions is the same as abandonment. We can tame it with our logic, we can reason with ourself and see it from their perspective. We can choose to remain friends rather than be the impetuous emotional toddler self who stamps their feet and makes the protests of ego. Psychological maturity is perhaps shown more keenly in the way we deal with disappointment than almost any other emotion.
I've seen my fair share of promising sunrises become starlight, yet in that disappointment I realise that there will be another sunrise. One must a wait, enjoy the starlit canopy, and in time there will be new rays of light upon the horizon.
There comes a time that for keeping one's self respect intact, one must leave what one hoped would be a good thing. The disappointment arrives as a sadness. It is a grief, an ending, yet in time it passes, in time the soul can begin to hope for something real, lasting and secure.
