Expectations Gone Wrong

I used to find myself getting frustrated when someone didn’t express remorse about their hurtful behavior. I still can’t understand how anyone could see the pain they cause another person and simply not care, but over the years I’ve learned not to have expectations of other people. I found that to be the main source of my frustration.


Showing anger or frustration can be a forlorn attempt to affect someone else’s behavior, something I can not control; however, changing my response to their behavior is 100% on me.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am, but rather that I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for your first approach. From that point you'll understand the power behind such a statement. If you're interested in what I do, that's another story. I embrace life to live my purpose: I mother, I friend; I laugh, I cry, I support; I love, I like, I admire. Mainly I trust and have faith, and thank God for every day I am able to use my life experiences to help people through theirs. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
