Christy My fortune said "minimize expectations to avoid being disappointed" but I had no expectations, only the memory of your lips against mine and a hope for the future. Now the memory may fade, but the hope will simply change and grow, shining in the distance. 000426
silentbob well here i thought you were like me
sharing conversation and having fun
but people sometimes aren't what they seem
sometimes you expect too much
mayne you should
you told me you were like me
or rather i was like y ou
maybe i'm not fulfilling your expectations
Well fuck you.
filia expect nothing and get what you expect 000907
Raina the precursor to failure and disappointment.

So sorry if I didn't live up to what you were hoping I'd be.

The funny thing about these is that EVERYONE has them, and maybe I disappointed you because you didn't fit into mine.
The Truth Expectations...

Should have clear, precise definitions.

Why do people keep them secret?
Do not be afraid to disclose to your neighbors what you expect from them.
Christy Come along and save me before the next round of the rat race begins. Go on, jump in that car and drive an hour west 'til you arrive out of breath at my door and report your honest intentions: "I've come to claim the dame from her dreary dungeon." Westward we'll travel once more, through painted cities and winding country roads. Though the intensity of the raindrops and sunbeams is more than I could possibly bear alone, I will enjoy the sights and sounds because I will be with you. When we stumble upon the bright glow of Omaha's morning lights, I'll be enchanted with the remarkable way the sunlight hits your delicate features. I cannot wait to see the golden gleam of your sandy blond hair beneath the setting sun. 010910
ELONAR why are they always so goddamn high?

and when will I be tall enough to at least brush them with my fingertips, even if it's just for one second?
x twisted x i think my biggest mistake is trying to live up to everyone elses expectations...or maybe its that my expectations for myself surpass everyone elses by a long shot. i see something inside of me that could be great. i could be amazing...if i tried hard enough. everyone has that inside of them...if they are just willing to see it. i want to tell the truth...i want to become the person im supposed to be. i want to believe in things again. see every sunrise and sunset like its the first time.. i wanna be myself and love that person. i want to love ME. im sick of hating myself. i want to feel the things...the way theyre supposed to feel. i dont want to be trapped here anymore. i want to live.
im dying to live.
piercedjenny I feel like I'm not living up to my own expectations, like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
I have wonderful friends, a good paying job, a man who loves me.
They expect I will be able to help them
That I'll be there to listen and provide solace
That I will attend functions
That I will provide more work than anyone else
That I will consistently raise the bar
He expects I will say "I do"
That we will grow old together and have children who have children.

I expect I will disappoint them all.

Mister Brightside what i hope for and what i expect are generally quite the opposite of each other.

when my expectations are disappointed, it is a happy surprise.

hsg when i find them

from myself
unhinged i thought when i came back we would pick up where we left off. now things are weird and i just want it to go back to what it was before. i miss what we where before.

and i am so afraid we won't ever be what we were before.
fir3cuB3 Assumptions are dangerous things to make, and like all dangerous things to make -- bombs, for instance, or strawberry shortcake -- if you make even the tiniest mistake you can find yourself in terrible trouble. Making assumptions simply means believing things are a certain way with little or no evidence that shows you are correct, and you can see at once how this can lead to terrible trouble. For instance, one morning you might wake up and make the assumption that your bed was in the same place that it always was, even though you would have no real evidence that this was so. But when you got out of your bed, you might discover that it had floated out to sea, and now you would be in terrible trouble all because of the incorrect assumption that you'd made. You can see that it is better not to make too many assumptions, particularly in the morning."
