when life disappoints...

…life disappoints us when expectations upon another are impregnated with our hopes and dreams, ones own deeper fulfillment is carved from blood, sweat, tears and hard work in the battlefield….there is no other way. So count it good that you are tired at the end of a big day and rely not on another for your happiness….become what you wish to be, through your own efforts and place your trust in yourself, for even if you believe in a higher power, that higher power believes in you.
