People let us down. I've let people down. It's a predictable cycle. Most people do their best, but we never know what others may expect from what they give us.
It's best to expect nothing.
Except from myself
We humans do not like change. At all. I mean, think of the last time your routine was upended. Or, you were thrust into a different setting. Or, your go-to restaurant took your favorite dish off them menu. Or, your partner tried to touch you..........well, never mind.
My point is this: I pride myself on being flexible. Open-minded. Unaffected by variety. And, I'm an idiot to be proud of any of those things.
