High or low expectations are too much. If you have high expectations, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. If you have low expectations, you are setting yourself up for mediocracy. If you have no expectations you are open to whatever comes.
When you love somebody, you have a lot of expectations. You want love to be everything you expect it to be. Love will never be what you expect it to be. Love always blows away your expectations. Love will let you fly and it will slam you into the dirt. If you love somebody, just love. Don’t expect anything.
If you don’t expect anything you are ready for anything. If the person you love loves you, rejoice. If the person you love loves somebody else, rejoice. That is true love. If you can love that well, love will always work for you.
If you fly, fly. If you are in the dirt, dig. If you are in love, love. That is enough.
