Every day I expect less,
But still too much, I guess

Very Buddhist, darlin'

In all seriousness - there is an upside to those staggeringly heartbreaking crushing episodes of life. After the big ones... the little disappointments aren't no nevermind at all.

It sounds horrid, but it's true.. best way to happiness is to lower your expectations. :)

Oh, yeah. But people are just so...fallible, y'know?

Jenny said...

Oh, of course we are!

But remembering the "we" of that is a key to serenity I think. When I remember how fallible *I* am, it's a heck of a lot easier to forgive the fallibility of someone else.

Not that it ain't still a challenge in the bleak times. Injury doesn't go away with a wish and pledge to forgive. But at least it's easier to bear over the years that way, yes?
