Things You Seriously Should Stop Expecting from Others
The biggest disappointments in our lives are often the result of misplaced expectations. This is especially true when it comes to our relationships and interactions with others.
If you want to avoid feeling disappointed by other people’s actions or words, you must know that there are a few things you should stop expecting from others in order to reduce any unnecessary frustration.
Stop Expecting People . . .
1. To Be Your Partner in Crime: If you want to do something, plan it on your own. If they chose to join, then welcome aboard!
2. To Be on Time: They won’t be. Stop being mad about it. Just bring a book to read while you wait.
3. To Change: Don’t expect that you can revise (or worse, correct) someone. Loving people means loving them the way they are.
4. Not to Change: Don’t discount the person who sets out to make a switch either.
5. To know what you’re thinking: People can’t read minds. They will never know how you feel unless you tell them. Clear?
6. To agree with you or follow “your lead”: You have to dare to be yourself, and follow you own intuition even though nobody seems to agree with you. Or show any sign of support.
7. To need you or like you: You might feel unwanted and unworthy to one person, but you are priceless to another. Don’t ever forget your worth. Spend time with those who value you.
So there you have it. Unrealistic expectations often lead to anger, frustration and resentment. By rethinking your attitude toward others, you can find yourself happier in your relationships and life.
