What if our expectations are wrong?

What if relying on someone to show up in the same place, at the same time, on the same days is just the wrong way to do it?

It’s inhumane. It’s unrealistic.

But it’s everything our world is built on. If you don’t show up to school, you miss the lesson, then you don’t do well on the test. The cycle repeats. After multiple failures, you dislike school, then you stop trying, and the cycle intensifies.

Same with work. You have a job, then something difficult comes up in your personal life. You miss a few days, you lose your job, and now you’re left without a source of income.

Maybe what’s crazy isn’t that life happens. Maybe what’s crazy is the inhumane expectation that everyone will be in one place at a predictable time every day of their lives.
