Have you ever expected something, whether it be small or big, and when it doesn't happen you are completely devastated, pissed off, or annoyed? I know I have that is for sure.
You have to realize, that things in life almost never play out exactly how you hope them to. Sometimes you have to just go with the flow of things, and let life help things fall into place. If you have lower expectations the less likely you are to be hurt. I have learned this a lot, but it how do you actually achieve it? I know this is easier said then done. Because, I struggle with it all the time.
I honestly believe the true key is to keep your expectations low. People are not perfect, they also do not have the same agenda, or way of doing things that you may do. Keeping an open mind, doing what you need to do, and going with the flow will save a lot of frustration. Life is really too short to be upset about this things.
Also, if someone is continually not exceeding your expectation, you should number one; tell them what your expectations are. We are not mind readers as people, man or woman. Number two, just accept the fact of your differences and do what you need to do for yourself. You will be surprised and how much happier you will be. If someone is intentionally letting you down, and it is obvious. Maybe it is time to question if they should be in your life at all.
I am not really sure what compelled me to write this. I do know that if I feel like things didn't go the way I hoped them to. This is with really anything in life. I have to remind myself of these things. Sometimes it is not always good to over analyze things. I hope maybe I can help make light of your frustrations on this matter and you can grow to be stronger too, like I have.
Life life, love yourself, and don't have high expectations for everyone else. Keep those for yourself, because you are worth it!
