People are like bananas. You need to peel them back one layer at a time in order to see who they really are.
Many times I have heard the phrase “I never thought they would … “
And yet, “they” did.
It doesn’t always have to be negative. It could be positive like “I never thought they’d go to college at their age” or “I never thought they’d lose the weight” or …
Unfortunately, as life would have it, it’s mostly negative.
As humans our needs are basic: love, friendship, time, touch
When we are missing one of these we tend to fall into “I never thought I’d … “
Life as it is.
