False Expectations

Expecting others to be something that they are not is setting yourself up for disappointment. No one is able to live up to what your expectations are because you are not clearly seeing who they truly are. In your mind, you’ve set up a dream relationship that you believe is true. But when others aren’t acting the way you thought they would, you are hurt or angered. If you step aside for a moment and open your eyes, you may see people as they truly are. Once you understand that expecting someone to be something they will never be will save you from heartache. Accepting others as they present themselves to be can free you to care for them without false pretense. Live your life without false expectations and life will be so much more peaceful.

What can’t they understand, this isn’t my style…
