I expect you to do this ! I expect you to understand ! I expected !I expect ….how many times have you expected something from someone! And how has the result turn out to be ? I bet majority of the time the results would have been disappointing for you.
We human do not understand one simple thing that we ourself are the reason for our disappointment . Majority of expectations develop where there is a relationship ,love , bond , attachment etc . Some people express it directly while some deny to agree that they are actually expecting unknowingly from the other person .
Ask your self, do you expect anything from a person walking on the street or do you even expect auto driver to always agree to let you hire his auto to reach the desired destination ! No right! We expect with our parents , friends, life partners, boyfriend, girlfriend, siblings and close ones ! Agreed ?
As a child you were always free , do whatever you wish to .. other people’s vague action and reaction did not matter to you .. all you knew was how to keep yourself entertain and busy doing different activities in a day ,isn’t it ? At that time did you even expect anyone to do anything for you? No right ? Everything happened on its own without your expectations and still you were much more happy then what you are right now.
Keeping expectations is not wrong in anyway … but expect from people you believe are going to understand your sentiments . Expect from the universe , nature , eternal force , yourself !
Life is too short to crib on things .. start living now 😊
