Maybe someone did let you down in certain aspects, but isn’t it inherently unfair to have these people on such a pedestal?By maintaining an accurate awareness of your own realities, you become able to determine what is truly expected from others.We need to learn how to take responsibility for our own lives and our own decisions before we can expect others to do the same.One of the biggest challenges we face in life is learning to accept people for who they truly are.A lot of us, myself get included, get these unrealistic expectations from romantic movies or the relationships we see on TV shows.Sometimes we get them from magazines and sometimes we get them from our friends. And if we expect everything to go exactly as we want it to go, or as we’ve seen it go in movies, things are going to go wrong. Not only that, but every good relationship takes work, dedication and a lot of effort. Chances are, once you've been in a relationship for a while, you're going to get a little sick of each other once in a while.
The problem will arise when the expectations do not materialize.
I believe one of the keys to happiness lies within the management of your expectations of people and circumstances.
If you do not have expectations, you can never be disappointed.
Often we tend to believe that the way we treat others will be the way we are treated in return. You need to make sure you enter into relationships with someone who has as big of a heart as you do.
If you do not, you may feel as if you are being taken advantage of or are being shortchanged.
