Expectations can be an interesting thing. They often span from our desires and wants or even our imagination.
But they will also leave you disappointed.
As much as it can be good to hold people to a standard, it’s also important to ensure that you aren’t creating this whole other person in your mind of who they should be.
For example, you might expect someone to make time for you because this is someone you enjoy hanging out with. But then you end up disappointed when they aren’t as keen to do what you want.
In a situation like that you need to assess where your expectations are coming from because you might find that what you’re expecting doesn’t even align with what this person was ever willing to offer.
You got so carried away with our own wants and desires that you were no longer willing to see things as they are.
