Discontentment, and perhaps in certain instances, disappointment are a direct result of a false expectation. False expectations of what life's reality is to be come, stems from the fabrication of a paradigm (a system of assumptions, concepts, values, and practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality) which only views life through desires and sugar-coated dreams.

and he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past
of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done,
in his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one.
