It's funny how many of our problems result from our entirely unrealistic expectations of what Life is Supposed to be Like. I don't see inscribed anywhere on my birth certificate a promise that life was going to be easy or simple — and yet a part of me deeply resents the fact that it isn't easy or simple, as though I had a right to that.

Quit expecting life to be one way or another.
