Because you deserve better.
At this point, I do not think you are "always wanting more" because you have false expectation of him.
I think you have higher standards for yourself, so the resentment, the "wanting more," is your self recognizing that you deserve more.

You are not being ungrateful or unrealistic.
You are being discerning, and rebuilding your self confidence and sense of worth.

Happy Birthday, by the way. (Sorry I'm late! *Grins*)
