…from anybody, you will not get disappointed’
A rather famous quote, often used after some disappointments. It is not easy to either lower expectations or have none at all. Well, that is how I feel.
I’ve tried often though. Yet, every-time I seem to have these expectations. Not big ones, but enough to leave me slightly disappointed at time and when it happens a few times in a row, it gets more than slightly.
Even in SL. Or maybe especially in SL. I’ve felt disappointed a lot lately. By people, by friends or people I thought were friends and mostly by myself for allowing it to happen. All due to my own expectations. Small things. Nothing big, but added up it gets big.
Varying from being invited to a party/wedding by new ‘friends’, to discover I was only invited so I could take pics for them and not because they like me, the person. Or being asked to go dancing, and getting stood up. And then there are people who only know how to find me when they, for all kind of reasons end up alone and need LM’s and TP’s to parties or events, like I am their personal Agency of Entertainment, always ready when in between partners. Especially disappointing when those friends weren’t available when I wanted a chat or just wanted some company. I’ve shrugged off a lot and decided to go my own way anyway, but yeah….disappointments piled up do not feel good and it makes it a bit hard at times to stay in good, friendly spirits. Lower my expectations eh, I really need to know the secret on how you do that!
What didn’t disappoint me was a new location I visited this afternoon: Voile. A residential estate by Heloise Evanier and so gorgeous! The pics in this blog-post I took there, some are a tad enhanced with an extra filter but mostly I did a lot of time-consuming fiddling with windlights.
At the arrival point, a reception office, you can get the sim rules and a notecard with direct LM’s to points of interest, but you really do need to explore the whole place – staying out of peoples rented homes of course!
Voile is a lovely, photogenic, Mediterranean place and great for some hours of enjoying the scenery and wandering about.
