People get hurt when their expectations are unmet.
And some people with unmet expectations are afraid to go all in, thinking that giving way too much can cost them their joy. They want to preserve the part of themselves that is not taken away (not yet). And by not giving too much, they think they are on the safe side. But being on the safe side is lonely. (You’re free to disagree.)
But for us who are willing to pay the price, we are not afraid to give away too much. If it pays, then it pays. If it doesn’t, then we move on. At least we tried.
