7 THINGS YOU NEED TO STOP EXPECTING FROM OTHER PEOPLE
One of the most important thing to realize is that not everyone is the same after a year has gone by or two years or three years and expecting them to be exactly the same way they were when you first met them is a bad idea.
People change all of the time for reasons that were clearly better for their life at those moments in time. Holding that against them is a very cruel thing to do and you may end up losing them because of this expectation.
If a person is unable to fathom any of the things that you had to endure in your life, then that is not their fault. Unfortunately, only you and whoever else that has had the same journey as you do. No one will truly understands where it is you came from.
Life is full of adversity. It is impossible that everyone will give a helping hand when times get rough on you. You have to be willing to accept the fact that you are an individual person who is more than capable of handling a critical situation all on your own.
Accept the times when people are generous enough to help out and then realize when you are on your own entirely. This doesn’t mean that they don’t want to help. It could just be poor timing on their end to offer any kind of assistance to you at the moment.
Expecting everyone to agree on literally everything you say is also pure insanity. There will always be a variety of other perspectives in the world that are not your own and you are going to have to be willing to view those perspectives whether you like it or not.
It is important that you are able to express to others what you are feeling, exactly what you want, and how you want it. Essentially, just being able to communicate to others on a normal level as well as being honest play important roles when it comes to getting what you want.
Expecting people to be perfect in general is probably the most unrealistic expectation there is in the entire world. Nobody is perfect. Thinking that there’s such a thing as a perfect human being will make you scavenge the entire earth for a very long time.
You must be willing to accept people’s differences no matter the shape or form they come in. Humans are often unable to help their flaws. Learn instead to cope with those flaws simply because that is who they are as a person. Why expect them to be something different than who they are?
Expecting everyone to be able to keep their lives together is also one of the most unrealistic expectations there is in the world. Do you truly think people love not having their lives together just at the snap of your fingers?
Hopefully this has helped you recognize some of the flawed, unrealistic expectations that we hold over each other. Maybe you experience them in your relationship(s). Maybe some of your friends or family members do these things. Let them know that having these kinds of expectations will get them nowhere with others.
