It’s not that like I really want to keep a mentality that I think I’m better than everyone else around me, but I certainly do believe that in order for me to not lose my mind or get overly stressed out, I simply need to have lower expectations for well, pretty much everyone. On a daily basis, I feel a sense of disappointment, aggravation and/or dumbfounded-ness by the actions and behavior of random people of the world.
I think that if I take the metaphoric bar, and significantly drop it about fifty feet, I won’t so often put myself in a situation where I should feel so down on the world, because that’s simply what should be expected.
Everyone is to be assumed stupid until proven otherwise. It’s more like a mantra than a self-reminder, I guess.
