how I feel about this.
So I am just going to put it out there.
Someone said to me once....or maybe a handful of times...
"Lower your expectations a bit. Then you won't be disappointed."
Why set yourself up?
What is an expectation, actually?
1. anticipation of something happening: a confident belief or strong hope that a particular event will happen
2. notion of something: a mental image of something expected, often compared to its reality
3. expected standard: a standard of conduct or performance expected by or of somebody
I looked up famous quotes pertaining to "expectations".
I'd say its about a 50 50 stance.
Having expectations is a good thing.
Having them is a bad thing.
Pretty evenly split.
Does it come down to expectations of someONE vs. someTHING?
Does that make having "them" different?
or it is
that it doesn't matter?
Do fallen expectations of a person
hurt any less
than the fallen expectations of something you desire out of life,
something you work hard for,
something you struggle for?
I have to believe that according to the words spoken above -
it would tend to lean more toward people.
One's expectations of how a person should be,
Sometimes having to do such a thing really fricken sucks.
Am I expecting too much?
All for the sake of happiness.
