“Expectation is the root of all heartache” – W. Shakespeare
I must wholeheartedly agree with this quote in all of its versions and understanding. I have come to realize that SO many people are going to build you up simply to let you down. If you EXPECT them to stick around and be who they claim, then you my dear are in for a world of heartache. If you EXPECT someone to be as amazing in real life as they pretend to be in the first 3 ish months, then you are in for some big disappointments.
Expect people to let you down, and be pleasantly surprised when they don’t.
Expect people to leave you, and be enchantingly delighted when they stay
Manage your own expectations and you will find less heartache in your life.
