So by now, one would think I would have learned my lesson about anticipation. That sometimes, if you anticipate something so much, analyzing and overanalyzing its eventual occurrence, it may turn out to disappoint you. This is because it has been built up so much that your hopes and dreams and wishes for said event can never realistically be fulfilled. Not ever.
I haven't learned this lesson yet. I still tend to hold upcoming events (and people) up so high that I am almost always disappointed by them. I've tried to lower my expectations, but I feel I shouldn't have to. Or should I?
Do I lower my standards because so many other people have either lowered theirs or they were low to begin with? Should I not get excited about things? Should I not have faith in people?
I just don't know.
