Reality versus Expectations

A banging sound on my door.

Opening I saw a woman

Her face covered in tears

Her nose all red as well as her cheeks

She entered pacing up and down

Turning to look at me and then pause she wanted to say something but she did not know how. What could it be I wonder that has this woman in tears and so much hurt. After offering water she finally calmed down and said I am done with men. I was not surprised by this at all instead I laughed softly saying isn’t that what all women say when going through a heartbreak. Are you ready to tell me what is it that has got you so worked up. I listened to her carefully word for word trying to understand the situation until she said he does not treat me the way I want. How long has he been treating you this way I asked. A few weeks after we started dating he started acting like this and now it’s been a year. Then why are you with him if you don’t like the way he treats you besides the obvious reason that you love him. Yes I do I really do. You just don’t like the person he is . Exactly she replied quickly he says he will change but he never does. Sweetheart he won’t change and yes that will hurt you but you need to be honest with yourself you are not in love with him you have fallen for the idea of what he could be and you think that your love is enough to make him a better man for you.Right now what is hurting is not the lies and the broken promises you are hurting because you refuse to accept the man in front of you because you want to see the man in the picture you created in your mind and now you have finally accepted the truth that not even your love can make him the better man you want. In the end she wiped her tears away and said I broke my heart with my own expectations.
