Are you hurt by unreal expectations?

Expectations, anticipation, unreal expectations... Zinger! I have been and continue to be hurt my unreal expectations of myself, others and my spouse. Why do I do this? Why do we humans do this?

Does your partner want to come home to you?

Married over thirty years and I still like the guy. I guess we have learned to let the unimportant things slide, and focus on what's really important--each other. We do more for each other, and are kinder, more aware that each day is a precious gift from God. Life is a vapor, and we never know what... Sign in to see full entry.
