This picture is always making me smiling. Maybe because it’s in some part about me. In the past somebody dear to me called me “woman with the biggest expectations”. But I really didn’t wait for prince on a white horse. Just for a man, who I could trust, and on who I could rely always. Man with who I could feel safe. Not only in dark night, but also in bad moments in life. Like from recipe on the picture from my older post https://tasteoflifebysabi.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/find-arms-that-will-hold-you/
Everybody heard about, that expectations hurt, and most of us even agree with that… but how many of us can stop expectations? I reduced them, but not eliminated them at all. I think, that it’s almost impossible.
Long time ago I had a friend. I expected a lot from him. and he knew about it. After a time I realised, that I idealised him to much. And probably he was tired from my big expectations. I guess, that he also had big expectations. And I couldn’t satisfy them.
Since some time I reduced my expectations towards people, and I am much more happy. When somebody is trying to hurt me, I don’t care so much like in the past. But when somebody is unexpectedly nice, it’s nice surprise.
Don’t expect to much from people, and you will get less hurts, if they disappoint you. And you will be much more happy, when they give you something good.
Hope for the best, and pray for that, but don’t expect to much. And you will get serenity, and you will be much more happy.
Don’t expect! Don’t predict! Be like a child, and just enjoy every moment of life.
All, what I expect from people is honesty, and sincerity. No more, no less, that I am giving. Maybe it’s silly expectation on virtual, but I am, who I am. Always the same.
I wish to live in the world, where people are honest, and nice for each other. World free from envying, lies, dirty games. Life could be so easy then. When all was clear and fair.
