Unrealistic expectations

Recommended Posts

slimjim26

So this past Friday I had a meeting of men at my house to talk about the aspects of "How to be a Godly man". It was a good time in which "we men" actually opened up. There were many things discussed but one thing seemed unanimous. People have unrealistic expectations going into relationships and unrealistic views of who they really are. We put so much time and energy into making "the list" of things that we want in a partner and ironicly sometimes we cant even meet these expectations our selves. This goes for both sexes. We have become so "independent" that we forget we are completely dependent on other people, and urn to find that "someone". I implore everyone to seek the persons inner core beliefs first(Are they kind?,Just?,Selfish?) and if they have good core beliefs its a better start than what society tells us to find first. Hollywood has fed us a lie! Real mature relationships are difficult and exhausting and you will not have that infatuated feeling always, it will come and go. Mature people have reasonable expectations of there significant other and strong core beliefs that define them.

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”:cool:

hey slim!

Good post! Very true, expectations are hard to over come tho. We all have them whether we want to or not. I was in a class and they told us to make a list of all the qualities we want in a partner. We were all writing furiously and all had these great lists. Then the speaker told us that when we became those qualities that we would be ready to date, and have the expectation of those qualities in someone else.

      Who said it was hard to believe? It's possible that it causes some Alzheimer's but its also possible that herpes merely takes advantage of a brain weakened by Alzheimer's rather than being the causative agent. This theory is a well-documented by experts. The fact is that they have no proof either way. Links do not prove anything and are often proven incorrect as causative agents. To further complicate things, they fully expect that Alzheimer's may have several causes. Therefore, the best way to handle it at the moment may be to reverse the damage with a cure which would likely work for all causes or at least most. It may be easier to fix for now and then prevent later as they learn more about the various causes. They may be on the brink of that now.

      I have to agree. Only American companies are under the jurisdiction of the FDA but why do they extend their influence over all treatments and medicines globally cos they are corrupt yeah. Makes sense

      Dear Mike, I have access to academic resources. If you would like to have a look at the original report, you can tell me your email. Note that it's only for personal use of HSV cure research survey.

      In my opinion the FDA are the biggest scammers out there. From my side as a mother who had to see my Daughter be infected because of the terrible misrepresentation of Pharmaceutical medications (Valtrex) I think that the FDA has a lot to answer for.  They take their funding and bonus's to approve dangerous medications which have later turned out to be deadly.  They approve and endorse sugar with no limitation or regulation although it's the biggest cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.  All because they are part of the bigger business scams out there to keep the population dependent on antivirals for life.  I know I would much rather a natural solution for my Daughter than the toxic medications the FDA endorse.
