Dear Kym, Your disappointment is a normal response. It's lovely and gratifying to share what we love with people we love. At the same time, sometimes we can develop expectations that will lead us to disappointment. You ask, do you have more work to do? The answer is that we want a rich and fulfilling life we are always challenging our limits and always have work to do. That's the healthy normal of living. Learning to accept people as they are, i.e. having their own foibles, agendas, strengths and weaknesses is ongoing work for most of us. When we can accept them as they are we have less expectation. Actually, over time, this results in more satisfying experiences. :) You are doing fine. Does this clarify?
