This is generally how I think. I am not comfortable with expecting anything from anyone, so therefore I don't. When I do start to find myself expecting anything from anyone, I kind of back off some. I found this quote on another blog... and it got me thinking... It made me realize why I don't like to expect things from anyone. Why I have to do it all myself. I like to act like I'm all tough, but in reality I am saving myself from more disappointment. Is it fair to yourself to not give anyone the chance to disappoint? Is it fair to yourself to stay away from vulnerability and never take chances? I really don't know, but I think I will stay this way for now. Maybe someday I'll loosen up a little ;)
Because expectation, when not fulfilled, gives you pain.
When you get something without expecting it,
It gives you pleasure.
