"Life is so constructed that an event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation." - Charlotte Bronte
I have often been disappointed because of unmet expectations. I have often been overjoyed by exceeded ones.
Is there a way to see the best in someone, see their potential and yet not burden them with unrealistic expectations? Is their a way to desire the best from someone, yet assure them that when they don't deliver perfection, you are still happy with them?
I always expect the best, but will always love you at your worst. End of story.
