I've got some old time philosophy for this. A better RM won't cure. A change in thinking will:
1) Tao says "Expectations lead to Disappointments" <--- true dat
2) Buddha says "Human Desire is Infinite" <--- we call it GAS, but double true dat
1) If people can just go with the flow, they'd enjoy what unfolds as a nice surprise, not a personal letdown.
2) If people can tame their desires, they will find happiness in moderation, and not unhappiness, in an ideal unfulfilled. Because it CAN NEVER BE fulfilled. That's the human condition of endless desire we are all born with, but a few learn to tame.
I love how you managed to translate a philosophical statement of buddha into "GAS". Made my day, thank you
