rare but good advice

I got caught up in my head this weekend due to many different things but I ultimately broke because of issues with some friends. I had already had my feelings hurt by a good friend...and that one I just had to figure out how to forgive as that's what you do with best friends. But on top of that all my other friends started being crappy too and I spent a lot of the weekend in bed.

My husband is pretty good about letting things play out with me...he knows by now how I process stuff and knows I'll always come back around. But after an entire weekend of moping and crying, he asked me if he could talk to me for a minute while he showered. Now keep in mind my husband is a man of very few words. But he made me sit and listen as he told me that I could not expect extraordinary acts from ordinary people. He told me that my problem lies in the fact that I am an extraordinary person and expect the same in return. But when I am dealing with just ordinary people that's not gonna happen. He made me list who my ordinary and extraordinary friends were...and then told me to keep that in mind next time I got my feelings hurt.
