TWQ: Disappointments

This week, TWQ (the Weekend Question) looks at letdowns and disappointments.

What sort of letdowns and disappointments have you ever had? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

* Two weeks ago I was told that I wasn't going to get a job I applied for, although I felt certain that I would.

* Earlier in the year, I was told I would be in the group facing mandatory redundancy, despite having worked there for 36 years.

* A necklace I sent off for as a present for someone turned out to be a cheap-looking item that was made in China.

Now it's over to you...

Disappointment is the feeling of dissatisfaction that follows the failure of expectations or hopes to manifest. Similar to regret, it differs in that a person feeling regret focuses primarily on the personal choices that contributed to a poor outcome, while a person feeling disappointment focuses on the outcome itself.[1] It is a source of psychological stress.[2] The study of disappointment—its causes, impact and the degree to which individual decisions are motivated by a desire to avoid it—is a focus in the field of decision analysis,[1][3] as disappointment is one of two primary emotions involved in decision-making

I've yet to find a woman even remotely resembling the many fine characteristics of HRH Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Career transitions today require the depersonalizing games associated with Social Media Platforms. I prefer one-on-one contact with people.

I'm disappointed that there have been no new posts here for so long.

Of course, reading this post, I understand why your absence has been so prolonged -- and I'm sorry.

But I hope you'll be back soon.

I leave a response each time I like a post on a blog
or I have something to contribute to the discussion. It is triggered by the passion displayed in the article I
read. And on this article "TWQ: Disappointments".
I was actually moved enough to leave a thought :-P I do have 2 questions for you if you
tend not to mind. Is it only me or does
it look like some of these comments come across like they are coming from brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I would like to follow you.
Could you make a list every one of your social sites like your linkedin
profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Interesting how this comment stream is gradually collapsing into itself like an apposite space wormhole.
