Live Without Expectations

Expectations: The act or state of looking forward or anticipating that something is going to, or should happen. A perceived notion of how something or someone is supposed to be.

When we have expectations we create a belief system that certain outcomes SHOULD happen. And then, what do we do if things don’t happen the way you expected them to?

We also have expectations for how other people SHOULD behave or react. And when they do not act as expected we are let down, hurt, angry or sad. We may even believe we have been disrespected or offended in some way.

We might expect that our partner will notice or new outfit or hair cut and say something. We might expect that a co-worker will compliment us on a job well done. We might expect that our kids will notice a mess and pick it up.

We expect people to do certain tasks automatically (event though we never made the request). We expect people to appreciate us, reward us and compliment us. When this does not happen we often grip and complain, “they SHOULD have complimented me, they SHOULD have noticed me.”

A SHOULD is an expectation imposed on one person by another. A SHOULD is a personal belief system being hailed as the RIGHT BELIEF and pushed onto another. Maybe their SHOULD is not the same as your SHOULD? Read more »
