Stop pretending. Stop dreaming. Focus.
Live in truth. Not everything is possible.
Keep realistic expectations. Do not hold others to your own impossibly high standards.
The world is what it is. It may not be ideal, but it must be viewed honestly.
Stop. Breathe. And try not to be disillusioned. Tears will not produce a different outcome. Deal with it.
Lower expectations leave less room for disappointment and hard feelings in the long run, though they are harder to swallow in the short term.
See life as it is, and not as it should be.
