Zero Expectations

0 expectations = 0 disappointments,  right?

There is definitely a lot of truth to that equation. However, it’s not totally wrong to have expectations of someone. Of course, it depends on what you’re expecting and who you’re expecting it from.

I can’t stand part-time friends. If you want to be my friend, be my friend. Don’t walk all shady, talk all shady and then say that you’re my friend. What is up with that? I’m the type of person that will do anything and I mean ANYTHING for my friends. I’ll even give them my last Rolo. That’s just the type of person I am. So are you telling me that I shouldn’t expect anything from anybody ever?! I’ll always have my friend’s backs and I know that they have mine, right? Wrong! If I had a Rand for every time a part-time friend disappointed me, I would’ve been writing this blog from my holiday house in St. Tropez.

If anything else, having someone let you down is an eye opener, especially when it comes to friends. I know it has been for me. Life is full of disappointments. You win some, you lose some. You dust your shoulder off, pop your collar and move on forwards and upwards.

Expectation can bring a lot of disappointment but there’s nothing wrong with looking forward to something every now and then. It shows that you still have hope and that you still believe


  1. Who would want to disappoint someone as sweet as you lex? Well, you don't need 'em, you've got Meggan and glad she's been a great friend to you!! And seriously, nothing wrong with expectations...I always say, rather have it all than nothing at all!

  2. Thanks Billy! So true, it's good when things like this happen to us, because our eyes open up to things we never saw before.

  3. Dear Lex, you are a strong ship that can weather a storm. You take in the good and you discard the bad. Good morals and values.

  4. I think we have expectations because we in turn would like people to treat us the way we treat them. Along the way we will find people that will disappoint us, but if things are meant to be, it will be and so you will find your treu friends.
