Generally, I don’t like having too many expectations. I prefer being surprised rather than disappointed but that doesn’t always serve me very well. Especially when it comes to how I allow others to treat me.
When I treat someone with kindness and respect I hope they will treat me the same way in return. Setting healthy boundaries is no longer an option but a requirement in my life. Now, I will raise my expectations so that I honor and respect myself in the way that I deserve.
