    Expectations were like fine pottery. The harder you held them, the more likely they
    were To cracK.

    when somebody
    provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is.

    Women are always expected to be the gracious hostess, quick with an anecdote and a sprinkling of laughter at others’ stories. We are always the ones who have to smooth over all the awkward moments in life with soul-crushing pleasantries. We are basically unpaid geishas. But when we do not fulfill this expectation (because we are introverted), people assume we must be either depressed or a c.unt. Maybe I’m a c.unt anyway, but it’s not because I don’t want to blink and smile at someone as they tell me they ran cross-country in middle school.

    i think the reason
    why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a long term relationship at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our s.hit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things "the right way" that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.

    You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It’s their mistake, not my failing.

    DID YOU THINK I WAS a city big enough for a weekend getaway? I am the town surrounding it, the one you've never heard of but always pass through. There are no neon lights here, no skyscrapers or statues, but there is thunder, for I make bridges tremble. I am not street meat, I am homemade jam thick enough to cut the sweetest thing your lips will touch. I am not police sirens, I am the crackle in a fireplace; I'd burn you and you wouldn't take your eyes off me cause I'd look so beautiful doing it you'd blush. I am not a hotel room, I am home. I am not the whiskey you want, I am the water you need. Don't come here with expectations and try to make a vacation out of me.

    i guess you just expect certain things from people but over time you realize that all you really have is yourself to count on.

    I'll always just be this shadow no one cares about. How do you expect me to come into the light when you push me further into the dark ?

    I don't compare myself to others.
    I compare myself to what others expect of me, everyday, all the time.
    Wheather or not I'm the perfect person who is skinny and pretty, always gets perfect grades, always follows the rules and never talks back, who never does anything wrong.
    Everyday hoping that expectations will stop and I can finally sleep.
    That I can finally be free of what people want.
    But it never does.

    I've had it. It's hard holding up to high expectations.
    My mom expects so much of me that i'm not capable of.
    She thinks i'm smarter and could do better if i honestly try.
    I AM TRYING! Nobody's cutting me some slack. Isn't
    winter break supposed to be relaxing? it's the most
    stressful fking time of the year. Christmas was a nightmare
    for me, and my mom, she's terrible. She's the whole reason
    i'm crying in my sleep. I don't like my church either.
    My "friends" don't even understand me. Everyone in my
    life just critisizes me. and then i go on wondering, "Why
    the fk am i still alive? All i do is cause others and myself
    pain and suffering." I hate my life. Honestly. Everyone
    wonders what its like to be me and they think it's amazing
    (because i have good grades) but it's awful. Being the oldest
    in my family is such a burden. Being Asian sucks.I can't even
    tell anyone this. I'm tired of pretending and stitching fake
    smiles on my face. I'm done with it. I don't know what else to do.
    I think i'm losing all hope. I just need to vent 'cuz i have no other
    way to let it out. What i want so damn badly is a fking break.
    I just wanna relax. Not study for tests. Not prepare for my
    church competitions. I don't even like competitions!! I hate it.
    I guess that just makes the list even longer. Right now my
    biggest hatred goes to my mother. Honestly, i don't even think
    she deserves that title. I'm not trying to be mean, but she's
    pushing me to my limits. She's breaking me from the inside
    out. She wont listen to me. It's all about her. She brags about
    how if she was me, i'd do a million times better. If you're still reading
    this....thanks. and i mean it. this was totally not worth reading yet
    you took the time to read it. that means alot. i'm sorry if i wasted yer time
    though. -sighs- i hate my life.

    It's hard to have expectations when you know they won't actually happen...
