Guess What? I am not a robot.






Have you ever been tired of fulfilling expectations?

Expectation is a big, big word, and they can mean a lot of things. It may mean different to you and me. It may keep you at your best, set you on fire. It gives you strength, it gives you will and reason to accomplish your goal. It gains a trust, it makes you believe. But it may let you down, deeply stumbled inside and worst case is no one may ever see you back again. Expectations may hurt, whether you are holding them from someone else, or you are expecting something on someone else. Expectation is a big, serious business you should never look down at.

So sometimes it is okay, just like what it says in Marina and The Diamonds' single, "I Am Not A Robot", to be vulnerable or to be troubled, because you are not a robot. Neither am I. We are not. Expectations do make one tired. If you are now setting your expectations too high on someone, be realistic: they are not a robot -and things will get better, for you and for them. You know what it takes to fulfill many expectations. We all have our own obsessions no one can interfere. We have our own world. We have our own goal. We have our own satisfaction. We decide them.

So don't get scared, stand up and face the Earth, the skies, the trees, the people you've been hiding from, the tasks you've been long avoiding, the friends you've long forgotten, the chances that are always been thrown wasted. Do your things. Do what makes you feel free. Say, scream, shout whatever you now feel like. It is okay sometimes to miss one or two expectations, as long as you don't cross the boundary. And there is only one line : never overdo it, and never try to be what you are not.


"It's okay to say you've got a weak spot
You don't always have to be on top
Better to be hated than love, love, loved for what you're not"
