    1. Exactly.
      In my case – just with other words the expectation to be loved – and actually not to be loved but manipulated by somebody without empathy and limited range of feelings.
      I thought this person is not able to express feelings but in fact, he had none of the feelings I expected. The moment of recognition was shocking….and I started to doubt my observation and assessment again after short time.
      A bitter (red) pill to swollow.

    1. I know this phenomena too…and I wonder why am I so arrogant to think that my place is always in the top 5%.
      It is also very strange that I do not have these high expectations towards others. I would never think of somebody – who is no key performer – that he/she is not worthy.
      Possibly, we set high standards for ourselves as a kind of self sabotage. So, if we fail our bad opinion about ourselves will be confirmed once more.
      I even cannot enjoy successes that I`ve achieved “too easily”.

  1. Expecting to live according to the perfect schedule I had built in my head. Not the case! And then, expectations on friends: loyalty, honesty, empathy instead of jealousy. Not the case again! But I over passed them all and I don’t have any anymore 🙂

  2. The expectation to financially sound, married, comfortably paying for a nice home for me an my family. The expectation that IF I DRESS WELL, KEEP MY HAIR AND FACE GROOMED, SPEAK WELL, BE RESPECTFUL AND PROFESSIONAL IN PRESENTING MYSELF, ALONG WITH MY HUNGER FOR READING WRITING AND CONSTANT LEARNING AND REFLECTION, that I would have somehow by this point ACCOMPLISHED A DREAM, ALONG WITH MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER THAT WOULD MAKE ME EVEN MORE FINANCIALLY SOUND AT THIS POINT!

    I am not financially sound; dressing well hasn’t bought me a damn thing, not even a steady beautiful woman, hardly any decent casual pussy. I HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED ONE MAJOR DREAM I HAD IN LIFE! The only dreams I have accomplished are those that accumulate apropos with time and average effort: college graduate, job in my field once upon a time, new car purchase, move to a major city, AND NOT LIVE ON WELFARE, EVER!

    At this point, I have no more expectations, NO MORE DREAMS OR EXPECTATIONS THAT A DREAM WILL POSSIBLY COME TRUE, except to maybe dream to see if I WAS A WHITE MAN, WITH MY SAME EDUCATION, SELF-ESTEEM, CONFIDENCE, HUNGER FOR READING AND KNOWLEDGE AND ADVANCEMENT, AND DRESSED AS WELL AS I ONCE DID, WOULD I STILL BE AS BROKE AND UNSUCCESSFUL (AS FAR AS FINANCE/MONEY GOES) AS I AM!!!???
