I feel, having expectations, or rather i would frame it as expectations aren't anything else but a part of the people we're in touch with.
And from where these expectation comes?
Yahh Exactly!! from the side of our loved ones!
And this starts when we see them doing the same, as we do, just to make them feel happy and special.
So yes! This is a genuine feeling of every individual that we do push ourselves to expect more and more from that single person.
