When we throw out expectations onto others, we set ourselves up for disappointment. We experience more peace and contentment when we stop expecting others to be who they're not. Even if we believe they should “be a certain way,” it's best to release the expectations altogether. This is where relationships get into trouble. Whether parents and children, friends, or intimate partners, expectations bring about a variety of unwanted emotions particularly unrealistic expectations.
"I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.”
Maya Angelou's said: “People know themselves much better than you do, That’s why it’s important to stop expecting them to be something other than who they are.” For example, I know of someone in a relationship who expects perfection from their partner. They get upset with their partner when she forgets something, doesn’t get the dishes spotless, leaves a light on, etc. She goes about her life doing the best she can on any day and because her partner expects so much from her, she walks on egg shells and has been struggling with depression. Her partner expects perfection from her and expects her to be someone she is not. They both need to work through this issue or there will be frustration and disappointment in the relationship. If not addressed, it will most likely fail. It’s not easy to let go of expectations. It’s not easy to let others be who they are with their imperfections and idiosyncrasies. It might not be easy, but it is possible. Don't blame anyone to disappointed you blame yourself to expecting too much from them. Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.” “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” When we embrace the true no expectations, no disappointments meaning, we begin to live fully in the present. Our lives are filled with acceptance, gratitude and love. We stop fighting things that are out of our control and focus our power on what we can control our own mindset, emotions and actions. Love yourself and the other person who attached with you like your parents, siblings, partner and children without expecting that's called a true care and love. Do something for the other person without judgement and expectations.
