Thinking Out Loud
How many of us go into situations armed with expectations?
I have learned that by doing so, we are setting ourselves up for major disappointment and resentment.
Boy, I was an expert at this. I would show up, wherever , and actually expect things to evolve the way I wanted, or expected, them to do so.
After a lot of disappointing let downs and very hurt feelings, I would retreat and wonder why everyone was so selfish.
I am realizing that my thoughts of how things 'should/could be' are precisely that! My thoughts! Not everyone 'speaks' the same language. We all 'see' things from different perspectives and experiences.
Why did it take as long as it did to realize this?
