So I stumbled upon this article:
Now I know many of us have been here....
Managing Expectations: We shouldn't have high expectations, in essence. But we strive to be on top with all we do, we should just expect setbacks I guess.

When we become too preoccupied with thinking about situations that have not met our expectations, we only create unnecessary stress.
that pretty much all you can do....
