People will always disappoint us if we set our targets too high and don't look at the unreasonable nature of our expectations. One of the more annoying aspects of human nature is to fail to recognize our own flawed thinking and be able to detect where our childhood failed us. Hence we will transpose onto others demands which were placed on us without putting sufficient analysis into why we have them.

The first rule of humanity is that we are all imperfect and tending first towards more emotional than rational behaviour thereby being more prone to err than we would like. Understanding this about ourselves will tend to produce a more forgiving outlook when we see this reality in others. Perhaps we can then put down our weapons instead of passing judgement too quickly.
I am still working on this although easier said than done and I try to focus on intention of the person rather than an awkward reaction on their part.
