I’m presentingly attempting to manage your expectations as best I can. I don’t know what they are but i am trying to discover them. I am here, at present, now. I am not at yesterday or the day before. The only logical course I have is now and future. To resolve a conflict, I need to know what expectations you have for me to proceed forward, if any.
You are my friend. You are hurt by something I did. I want you to be unhurt. I need to know what course to take. That’s all.
