Expectations are natural. You can’t go through life not expecting something. Even not expecting something is an expectation in itself – you expect not to expect anything, if you get what am trying to say!
With expectations, come disappointments. That’s also quite natural. After all, you can’t have everything that you expect in life! So sometimes, you learn to lower your expectations, so you won’t be too disappointed if things don’t work the way you want to.
But should you? Should you lower your expectations to avoid disappointment? Would that be a form of lowering your own personal standards about something in life? Mean, logically you have high expectations of something because you’ve taken all elements into consideration before forming this expectation.
On the other hand, if you learn not to expect too much out of everything, you’d probably be less frustrated when things don’t go your way. You would be a happier person in general.
So, do you learn to lower your expectations to be a easily satisfied person? Or should you have high expectations (providing it’s reasonable) because you think you’re worth what you expect from others and yourself?
