My mom gets so overexcited over everything even when she's not sure if it'll work or not. I don't get how she can show such hope at the early stages of something. I never do that. I always wait till the very very last minute to show joy like oh wow, it actually worked out. Over the years, most things never work out for me so I have come to learn never to show any sort of joy/hope. It's annoying to see her expressing so much hope that it's hard to see her disappointed and it honesty makes me uncomfortable and wants to tell her to calm down. When she gets like that, she becomes very fragile so I have a hard time telling her the bad news or whatever. It's freaking annoying.
