It’s best to have low expectations. Not in terms of how we should behave, but both in terms of how we think things will turn out and what we think will make us happy.
Be open to pleasant surprises. Be open to life sometimes taking you in a different direction from what you expected.
The new situation that you’re trying to create won’t be as good as you think it will be. And you’ll look back and see that the old situation wasn’t as bad as you thought it was.
