  1. Since my life doesn’t center around the people around me, I just assume and expect the people will be whoever they are and think however they do… 🙂

      1. It’s an attitude that has developed over the years as I’m learning that people are less inclined these days to keep their word. Other than my family, I can probably count on one hand the number of reliable friends I have.

      1. I am disappointed almost daily. Which frustrates me a lot but mostly with myself because I know that I should not have expectations. I’m aware that I am in charge only of my actions but I suppose that probably with time I will finally understand that my happiness does not depend on others.

  2. Honesty. It takes a certain type of person to give you honest thoughts/opinions. So many people (rightly or wrongly) bend the truth or outright lie for whatever reason or end. I have been lied to too many times to not wish to be told the truth always. Regardless of whether it isn’t what I want/need to hear. I appreciate my health isn’t brilliant, but having someone lie to me in an effort to protect me isn’t going to help me in the long run.

    1. This is a big one! I noticed that people want to take credit for the good situations, but they want to pass on when shit goes down. Being responsible for both good and bad and acting accordingly is the way to help us and our society.

  3. From the ones I truly love, and who are really close to me (I guess I can count 5), I expect a lot… Unconditional love, support, understanding. I expect what I give, basically! From the rest of the planet, literally nothing. I learnt how to low my expectations to zero!!!!

  4. I think it depends on the nature of the relationship. “People around you” could be the postman, a friend, the spouse or the kid. My expectation levels are highly fluctuating in nature. 🙂 ( “from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” LK12:48)
