20+ Fierce Examples of How Reality Doesn’t Match Our Expectations

Sometimes it happens that our wishes don’t match our reality. For example, you order a coat on the internet and read lots of reviews but when you get it in the mail, it’s different than you expected. Or you pay for expensive makeup, and the result is really disappointing. In this article, we’d like to talk about situations like these.

At Bright Side, we’ve happened to be in similar situations from time to time. Sure, they are unpleasant, but if you keep your optimistic outlook, you can just laugh at them and move on.
