The lesser you expect, the lesser you get… (No Bhai, this is not about the iPod)
When you ask for nothing at all, or at least for next to nothing, and you don’t get even that, then either you’re asking for too much and don’t know that you are, or you’re the biggest fool in the world for expecting that nothing from the other person.
Life runs on expectations. Can’t avoid those
All you can do is keep yourself away from people who expect from you but grudge what you expect from them…
