Yesterday my grandmother had a moment of insight. She was complaining about a caregiver who she doesn't like. After a moment of silence, she said:
"I expect everyone to be perfect".
I laughed out loud. She asked why. I said I laughed because it was true.
"But nobody is perfect", I offered back.
She said that's true. After a moment of silence, she offered the conclusion:
"So, I'll never be happy".
