Well, trying times. It's hard. I have to keep reminding myself, do not expect. When you do not expect, you do not get disappointed.
One good turn deserves another? The idiom. Well, that's is a good example of expectation. One does a good thing and expects something good happens to them? It's hard. God, really it's hard.
It's hard to be nice to someone when they do not deserve it. You expect them to change? To feel grateful for your help. Don't. Don't expect.
Trying to keep my chin up and smile through clenched teeth.
God, Your will be done.
