Our desires and our expectations, sadly, are often at odds and curiously disconnected.
We know our reality, and so often do our desires ignore such limitations.
Yet we recognize that the expected is borne of our reality, but our desires are not. And we are surprised when the two fail to coincide.
And it is irrational yet unavoidable.
A curse upon this day and upon myself. I know what is real yet I yearn to reject it.
