Expectations disappointment

There is truth in this, however, life’s purpose isn’t about avoiding disappointment. In most things the most growth comes from mistakes, failures, and pain. Don’t be afraid to intelligently, deliberately experience new things, that is what life is for.  “As iron sharpens iron,    so one person sharpens another.”  “If you’re not failing     you’re not trying.”

But therein lies the problem, you can't expect others to do as you would... this is something my girls deal with. My hubby and I will do anthing for our girls and so they think others will too. They are always there for their friends no matter what. Many times they are let down by others. Hard to know because many people are not themselves when you first meet them so how to know who is real and who is only there for what they can take?

Have no expectations and you'll never be disappointed.  If it's important enough, go get it yourself.  No one has the same schedule as you.

Don't worship the ground they walk on; that is unhealthy. Just love them and expect their love in return.

I don't believe this to be true in this day and age. Doing everything with a kind heart just gets taken as weakness. I'll stay true to my heart but forget about being nice to those people that don't deserve it anymore.
