Honestly you would think as old as I am I would lower my expectations or at least put them more in line with reality. But I do not. I expect people to be honest with me. I expect friends to be loyal.
It seems my expectations often exceed their willingness or capabilities. There is a fine line between the two.
This has proven to be difficult for me as I have had to cut friends, lovers, and even relatives out of my life. I wonder sometimes if I am too hard on them. But this is who I am and at least with me, you know what to expect.
