A social event can get completely out of hand if too many strong emotions are expressed too quickly. Everyone has his or her own set of needs, which can complicate your life as each person tries to control what's happening. The problem is that no one can make things return to normal. Letting go of previous expectations can liberate you from a frustrating cycle.

Mysterious, eh? Gotta figure it all out myself before I know how to share it.
