Disappointing others

“Do not think you can be brave with your life and your work and never disappoint anyone. It doesn’t work that way.” Oprah Winfrey

Heard this quote yesterday while listening to the audio version of Brene Brown’s Braving the Wilderness.

Personal and professional growth is complicated. Disappointing others is complicated. I can’t make you happy to make myself happy, but I still regret the disappointment I have caused others.  Perhaps I will get to this Oprah-level of resilience one day. Not there yet.
