Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed

Alexander Pope

Today I got to think about expectations and how they affect our lives.

People usually expect too much of situation and others, am I right? Let’s take this story for example: You meet someone, say, off the internet. A whole great deal of chemistry is developed and you finally set a date to meet in person. When you finally do, the level of expectation is usually way too high and it all falls apart way too fast!

This does not only apply to relationships, of course. What about what you expect out of your own life? Out of your job?

When should you stop exepecting so much and start actually living without the inevitable disappointment?

So, let’s take Alexander Pope’s quote above and end the disappointment. Today!

The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time

Peace and Love 😉

  1. Now I’m really confused!? Are you talking about your life or mine? I’m scared!!!! I mean, you are a big friend but… are you also the big brother?!!?

    Here’s another thought: do you believe in ghosts? If you do, do you ever think that your dead grandmother may be watching while you have sex?

    Blessed is the man who believes in nothing, for he shall always have careless sex!

  2. My dear baby Ser.Calvin,
    I guess the whole point of the post was to “hit” everyone… hahaha! It’s about me, about you, about most of the guys we know… oh yeah!
    And no, I don’t think of dead people when I’m having sex… oh no siree! brrrrr :S
