It seems there is nothing worse than disappointing others in our life. And when you have a track record of being the most wonderful thing since sliced bread, you have the burden of maintaining that reputation, which in light of the ascension, is impossible.
So, in love and respect for all those in my life, and to show them how much I care, I have decided to lower everyone’s expectations of me….That is, the old, 3D expectations.
Fortunately they already have, over time, come to have low expectations of me in some areas. Like sending birthday cards, or attending funerals. Or helping them to move or driving them to the airport.
But there are some things I could work on. I’m still a tad too awesome for my own good.
I probably will fight the urge to clean up the apartment before they come over for a visit. And I might not even bring the obligatory offering when I visit them.
I’m probably not going to pretend to be interested in subjects that they find fascinating, and I’m not going to laugh at their jokes, just the funny ones.
I’m definitely not going to do anything for them emotionally or physically or financially that they can do for themselves.
I could most certainly be less attentive, and periodically irritate them with my singular and nuclear focus on ascension and my soul.
Granted, it’s harder to go downward in expectations than up…for instance, toddlers. They get praised for things like finishing their vegetables or little Johnnie not missing the porcelain in the loo.
Although, come to think of it, I was super proud of my second husband for that one.
I’m sure there’s a lot more stuff. I’ll have to think about it awhile. But I’m definitely excited about showing my love for others by exploring and setting into motion sub-virtuous behaviors.
LOW EXPECTATIONS EQUAL LESS DISAPPOINTMENT
So, to reiterate, in absolute compassion for those I love and cherish, I am lowering expectations. And the sooner the better. That way, over time, they will get accustomed to the new me.
Granted, I have been slowly stepping down from that role for awhile now, but it’s time to step up even more on the stepping down of expectations. Until the following is achieved:
My behavior and attitude will be well below what they…and pretty much most other people…deem acceptable. In time they will all but forget how awesome I am. My loving and caring ways will be but a distant memory. I think you’ll agree that it’s a foolproof plan: As my near saint-like behavior deteriorates more and more, they will expect less and less from me, and consequently they will not be so disappointed when I inevitably let them down.
I hate seeing anyone feel disappointed. And I never want to let anyone down. Yes, that’s how much I care. 😍
Enjoy It’s A Good Life

Haha Maria. The porcelain part made me lol.
I personally have come to very much enjoy the silence after I reply ‘OK’ to the question ‘How are you?’.
The silence is a discrete hint to understand that I’m not rebounding with the old ‘And you?’ question.
The initial question ‘how are you?’ is mostly asked not because of sincerity but to pull information out of my nose and/or is seen as a permission from my part to start twittering endlessly about themselves, accidents, presidents, work, sports, ilness, tv, media, earthquakes, family,… all of which interest me as much as the weight of the droppings of a Persian cat.
The silence mysteriously yet effectively removes people from of my life.
It’s magic I tell ya, plain magic.
Stefan, yeah, I thought the guys would appreciate the porcelain reference. And Kudos on the silence as a way of removing unwanted feeders from your life. 🤗💕
Love your humor and especially your contrarian heart-mind thinking, thank you! Yesterday, I got nudged to play with the old maxim, “Home is where the heart is.” Turned that around to be, “Heart is where home is.” and voila, that ‘reverse engineering’, which is what seems to me is de rigor in this version of 3D Earth, made much more sense! Love, B.
Barbara, your reverse engineering principle…’Home in where the heart is’ is where it’s at!!! I LOVE it…..Thanks for the wisdom,🤗🌹💕💕💕
