If there was a club for people who struggle with having too high of expectations, I would be the president. I’ve been known to have my expectations dashed when it comes to everything from birthday parties to relationships. I tend to build things up in my head only to be brought back down to reality with a THUMP.
I’m really trying to be better about this and believe that I’ve come a long way in lowering my expectations. But sometimes, well sometimes, the expectations get blown out of the water by a reality that is just way better.
