    dotsExpect the Assuptionsdots
    -------------------------------------------


    As my old man would say: never assume, never expect. Assumptions can sprout dangerous conclusions and uneasy judgement. Are people really that incapable to take that one vital minute to listen to the background noise, that little voice and those eyes on the other side of yours, all big and shiny, just dying to document the truth? Assumptions and judgement destroy possible connections, friendships, or even more. Then there's expectation. I don't think I've ever understood that part till recently; expectation only causes disappointment. Then the question spring up, do expectation and hope go hand and hand? I think not. Hoping someone does something versus expecting someone does something have two connotations, hope being light and positive and expecting being harsh. My life has been easier when I have no expectation for the human race, sure you could think that thought could be quite depressing, but my motto is " you can only go up from there". Expecting nothing means that anything moderately satisfying that occurs could be seen in positive life. The only irony I see in this is I expect so much from myself, I expect that I continue to hold no expectations for people, especially those who make assumptions.

      Funny. I just posted one called "assumption." I feel this is a very nuanced word. I also think it is impossible to not have ANY expectations about something... Especially when we see how things are "supposed" to be through the media such as TV and advertising. I think these things affect us a lot more than we care to notice or admit.
