Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed
Today I got to think about expectations and how they affect our lives.
People usually expect too much of situation and others, am I right? Let’s take this story for example: You meet someone, say, off the internet. A whole great deal of chemistry is developed and you finally set a date to meet in person. When you finally do, the level of expectation is usually way too high and it all falls apart way too fast!
This does not only apply to relationships, of course. What about what you expect out of your own life? Out of your job?
When should you stop exepecting so much and start actually living without the inevitable disappointment?
So, let’s take Alexander Pope’s quote above and end the disappointment. Today!
The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time
Peace and Love 😉
