    The Only One

    The only one you can truly be a disappointment to is yourself.  If you're not happy with yourself, etc.  The other people in your life, if they truly love you will forgive and support you.

    I Really Don't

    I always seem to be a great disappointment, whether to myself or to others. I don't know why, wish I did. I try so hard, but I know for certain that I disappoint many of the folk I have known.
