When I talk about the right approach to imposing your high expectations on others, I do mean it. It’s just essential to find the golden middle and try hard not be too intrusive or putting too much pressure at a time.
You expect to find a lover who can give you it all.
Instead, learn to love him the way he is, accept that he will not change, and know that choosing to love him meant choosing to love his flaws as well.
When in fact it’s fascinating to look at someone and just fall… no hesitations, no expectations. Just fall in love freely.
People are so quick to judge this generation for impersonal texting conversations or a missed call because a phone died. (Is in a ditch somewhere? He must be in a ditch if he isn’t answering his phone.)
I think dignity comes from being authentic. We need to be vocal about our expectations. We need to make sure people are on the same page with our expectations for how we hope to be treated.
Sometimes it’s not about what we want at all; sometimes we fall for people who we had no intentions of falling for and out of that the most beautiful, real love is born.
Never allow those who are jaded to try and jade you. Keep your head high and your expectations even higher.
How to cut tomatoes.
I used to take being underestimated as an insult. Until I saw it for what it was. Just a clear reflection of my own behavior.
