Expectations, you fulfil them or you don’t. If you expect too much, you get more disappointed. It’s better if you don’t expect at all. That’s what I’ve learned. I just take things as they come.
You take things for granted. When you’re a teenager, you have conflicts with your parents. You might even hate them for a while. Some might even stay that way. You think they don’t care about you so you rebel against them. You rather stay out late at night with your friends than stay at home. You expect your parents to just let you be. Maybe there are parents that really doesn’t care. But most parents do. They just need a reminder from time to time. Kids expect their parents to see they have problems or worries. But parents won’t know if you don’t tell them. One day, they won’t be around anymore.
