I’ve been having a real problem with other people… and what I mean by that, is that I have certain expectations of others in my life that aren’t being met. See, I look at the world a certain way, and I have a pretty good idea of “how things should be”, and that’s pretty set in my mind. I then compare the actions of those around me to those ideals, and areas that are amiss begin to affect me.
That’s a very general way of putting it. A specific example would be how I think friends should treat other friends. I’m pretty strict about how I think friends should treat each other. After talking with my girlfriend about some of these things, she tried to explain to me that people just aren’t they way I want them to be. So, I sometimes wonder if maybe I am the one with the problem.
I’d like to get more specific and give a few examples of what I’m talking about, but I’m just not feeling like getting into it, especially since I only know of one person who reads these anyway, and it doesn’t really pertain to her anyway.
