    If you don't expect anything, you won't be disappointed when you get nothing. If you do get anything, you can be surprised and pleased.

    No matter what your expectations, you can still get hurt.

    Being hurt from time to time is another one of life's lessons. Expect it, accept it, get over it, and someday you may understand it!

    I do. I don't like getting my hopes up in anything only to be disappointed.

    I agree with Laja....".If you don't expect anything, you won't be disappointed when you get nothing. If you do get anything, you can be surprised and pleased.

    No matter what your expectations, you can still get hurt."

    With disappointment I agree.
    Hurt, well you can always get hurt.

    Generally though I tend not to expect anything from people for that reason.

    If you live it is impossible to avoid pain. Something will hurt you, be it Unrequited love, someone's death, the breakup of a relationship. Feelings have a way of slipping up on you without you being aware of it.

    can you really live like that, thats why I said feelings have a way of slipping up on you.

    yes I understand but we are human, and we get involved emotionally weather we want to or not. Indeed man will fail you everytime. But rather than not expecting anything from them how about began to expect that they will hurt you and you have a back up plan. It's a lonely life, not trusting or having faith in someone. And you may be picking the wrong people to be around. But I realize that for every painful thing I have expereinced in life it made me stronger.

    Not really .. because even when you do not have any expectations at all .. you can still experience some form of 'hurt' (emotional, mental, etc) ... from just meeting/greeting another.
  • Chatty 2011/02/16 04:33:14
    No. We all have things that we want & need from other people ~ even if we don't want to admit it.

    Not having expectations of people won't protect you from harm or disappointment. Plus, it is impractical to live life completely without expectations.

    We should endeavor to make sure we are not placing unrealistic expectations on people, or on ourselves.

    OK. I think I initially took it from a pessimistic point of view, but I think I understand you now. Thanks.

    Years ago in the ARMY a Warrant Officer of mine taught me that with each and every person we meet in life offers us a opportunity. To learn something from them or for them to learn something from us. If we fail to do so then we are both at a loss. To life a rich life is to share it with others.

    I believe if you don't expect anything from anyone, you're not likely to get anything from anyone. lol So, you will never be disappointed, I guess.
