I would rather have them being angry. As Thomas Paine quotes:
“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value." Anger can be overcome and learnt from, quicker than disappointment. Overcoming anger gives delight to existence, it could be learnt from and moved on from. Having my parents being "disappointed" at me would make me feel like bending my head down in shame. There is a big difference in between anger and disappointment. Disappointment can hurt me, especially coming from my parents, it can also temper me and yet strengthen me. But I'd have to commit a really bad sin I'm order to have my parents being disappointed so if rather have them angry. As they say; When anger rises, think of the consequences. My parents understand me that way when I quote that line :-) the anger immediately dies down a little and it's easier to talk things out.
I would prefer them to be angry at me. The angriness can go very quickly, besides, if they are disappointed you've probably made a very bad mistake...
It depends on why they are disappointed. Did you fail your exams? Then it's bad. But, if you are happy with your 'mistake' (for example, going to Europe for some adventure, or going for a guy they don't like), why don't you? It happens all the time. It only means they are unable to let you go ;)
worst is dissapointed . when somebodys dissapointed in you especially your parents, the 1's who raised you and have expectations,you feel guilty and hurt and you know deep down you've let them down.
then you have to do things to take that dissapointment away.
parents get over anger, they kick being dissapointed back at you in future
dissapointed. parents are always going to get angry at you at least once, its inevitably going to happen. but its a much worse feeling when there dissapointed in you.
I wud much rather have them angry instead of disappointed
