I know someone wished I ended up six-feet under at Arlington National Cemetery so that they could've had bragging rights at certain local establishments... cause they actually said that to me at freaking baseball game.
So obviously no matter what I do, no matter how hard I try, because they didn't get that wish that was so very important to them so they could be legitimize in the eyes of others I was going to be a disappointment to them... because their perfect scenarios always end up coming short.
I didn't die 'fighting in the war or terror', they are disappointed, I get a decent job and hold onto it for a long period of time, they are disappointed, I deal with a situation that is constantly degrading, they are disappointed. I fight tooth and nail for every little thing I do.... they are disappointed.
Hell they happiest they sounded was when I was in the hospital late last year... which makes me wonder if they were hoping I'd die.... because then they would have the 'tragic story' they always wanted to tell people.
