That’s the ‘glass is half-full’ version of the mood. The other title could be “The down side of reasonableness” — when you are a reasonable enough person, you know that you can’t have all the niceties you might like; you can’t outright change the basic ways other people interact with the world. But the side effect is that you don’t get the satisfaction of getting really angry about these facts.
And if I was more saintly, I wouldn’t feel deprived and thwarted about that.
Feeling this way on a night that people around the world are reflecting on mixed motives and the consequences of our actions….well, that’s complicated too.
I’ll just put away the uneaten food and continue hanging up laundry.
