June Challenge #2 Idealist/Halo
This would probably explain why I'm so easily shocked and surprised when the outcome of certain scenarios and peoples behavior totally reflect the opposite. So after repeatedly being shocked and disappointed it was no surprise that my "idealism" began to fade. I was - am becoming more cynical, more sarcastic and viewed life with the perspective of low expectations. Not only of MYSELF, but very low expectations of others. BUT there's a problem with that outlook in life. I CAN'T BLAME OTHERS FOR MEETING MY LOW EXPECTATIONS. I CAN'T BLAME OTHERS FOR NOT REACHING MY IDEALIST VIEWS. I was doing that. So I'm looking back at the definition of IDEALISM...and realistic or not... I am embracing those thoughts and views.
