I accept to expect....

I am there when you need a sympathetic ear…..


I am there when you need a shoulder to cry on…..


I am there when you need to share your deepest secrets…..


I am there when you need some consolation…..


I am there to provide you a helping hand…..


I am there to silently listen to your boastful claims…..


I am there as a wall………to absorb most of your frustration hurled at me….


I am there when you need my support…..monetarily and morally…..


I am there to listen to your theories..about life, about people….even if they sound ridiculous and impractical…


I am there as your friend, philosopher…and sometimes guide……


But where are you….when I need you most?


Empathize but don't ever sympathize......


Try listening to me.....and just not hear......


Prove me wrong that support cannot be unconditional....


The times I realise that I'm making excuses for your absence….. maybe….just maybe….. I erred….. fundamentally……


I expected the right things from the wrong people....or did I expect the wrong things from the right people?

when you are there for everything..! its obvious for her/him to be for you!... its normal!.. but will that person be or not is the question..! and even if we keep excusing ourself for their absense.. where would the limit be?...

Yuppu...there are some 'trying' times when I do feel that !

-/Pritika
Oh..et tu Pritika? But...I gather the reasons are different....just one of the times I feel I expected too much from some people..and end up being dissappointed.

Everyone has expectations...just that the nature and intensity varies.

It depends on lot of things ma.. If the other person knows pretty well about what all you expect, they might atleast plan to meet it.. Otherwise, it is not easy. Thats why be it relationships in family or career, very few people attain an "A" grade.

Tee hee...and what if the 'other' person does not meet the expectations? Then what? Continue the relationship at your own cost...or just 'dump' it..?
