Expectations

It’s natural to have expectations in life and with the people that we know and love, especially if life and our loved ones usually treat us a certain way. It’s not an easy thing to do, but over the years I have begun to expect less and it really does take some stress out of life!

It is always good to have hope and to hold onto hope, but to expect things, or people to turn out a certain way can many times lead to disappointment. I have learned over the years to go with the flow and take things as they are. Life will unfold as it should and when we just go along for the ride without expecting too much, it can prevent a lot of heartache. It also doubles the joy when something surprises us, or goes according to plan!

Sometimes we expect too much from other people. We expect them to care for us, to fix us, to show us an abundance of love. Everyone shows love in their own way and we could become hurt if we expect them to act in the way we do, or how we would like them to. If we do things for others without expecting anything in return and if we go about looking at life less rigidly, we can create so much more happiness for ourselves!

    1. It is definitely not an easy one, I still have a tendency to do this, though I’m much better about it. It’s good that you are working on it though, I’m sure it will bring much more peace to your life!
