Why do we get disappointed when plans don’t go the way we thought or when somebody doesn’t act the way we think they should? Why are we so hard on ourselves when things don’t go the way they should?These goes through our head every time something seems to go against our expectations. But, should we expect anything at all? Why do we even have expectations in the first place?
These goes through our head every time something seems to go against our expectations. But, how do we know something is supposed to happen this or that way? How do we know what to expect from something or somebody? Why do we even HAVE expectations?
I have heard the phrase “no expectations” many times in my life but I never actually understood it, or even really thought about its deep meaning.
Think about it… if we didn’t expect so much from anything or anyone, we wouldn’t be able to get disappointed, and no disappointment means no stress, no fights, no nothing but happiness and going with the flow. If plans don’t go the way you want them to, it’s because they are not meant to happen that way. Why do we keep trying to find a reason to why things happen?
That is life. A crazy rollercoaster of emotions, sometimes going up and sometimes going down, but exciting as fuck.
So my advice is this: Free yourself from expectations, life is still going to surprise you anyway, so just let it happen.
