The woman is glad that her father survived. Although she is disappointed because she had just spent all of this time and money with no pay off. Her father survived and the money she spent, regardless of whether she was happy to be with him or not, was wasted as it's intended purpose wasn't fulfilled.

Thanks a bunches.


A woman travels continents and oceans to be at her dying father's bedside and when he doesn't die, even though she loves him, she's disappointed. Why?


Explain why the woman was disappointed in your own way.


She isn't disappointing in him, but in herself. She was going to comfort and love him as best as she probably could at his deathbed. Knowing that she wouldn't be able to fulfill it because he didn't die, she wishes she now knows she could do better at her comfort then what she planned to do the first time.

That or she only had a small amount of money and time to travel, so when he really dies....she may not be there.

I can do it in one word. You guys ready for this?

Anticatharsis.

Her father is on the edge of death, and despite him living being a good thing, it prevents the catharsis that would come about with the actual death. She remains in the emotionally tense state of waiting for her father to die.

She's disappointed because the poison she'd worked so hard on couldn't finish the job, and now the old man is on to her.

Look's like she's just gonna have take a pillow and do it the old-fashioned way <3

She was mining her father for attention for herself, that was his biggest utility value to her and his dead was the mother lode. Him not dying denied her access to that.
Reminds me of that girl who got her friend to kill himself. Same thing, she mined all of the attention
