“Expectations are everything. Half, or more than half, of the pain you experience when difficulties happen isn’t due to the difficulties. It’s due to your shock, your confusion, and your self-pity over the fact it’s happening to you. Half the pain isn’t from the event. It’s from your inability to process. Largely, it’s because of expectations.” – Tim Keller
