We expect so much in our day to day life. Every morning we get up and expect our day to be good. We expect to reach on our duties, school office, and college on time. We have a lot of expectations from life.
We expect a lot from our parents, spouse, kids and siblings. The list of expectation is never ending.
Expecting too much leads to heartbreak and disappointment… But then does it mean that we shouldn't have expectations???
As my friend Mamata says “Expectations is that one thing which is best not had but still can’t do without it. Some expectations result in disappointments and some into a fulfilling feeling of happiness… but then that’s life… what’s life if you don’t expect from people you love, do the best you can for everyone and try not to burden them with your expectations…”
What’s wrong in expecting from people we love? We expect our parents to understand and help us… Similarly they expect us to fulfill their wishes and take care of them in old age… we expect our spouses to understand our feelings and viceversa… we expect our kids to listen to us and fulfill our wishes…
But yes, too much of anything is definitely harmful. So why not give our best to our near and dear ones and be happy.
