- Hate my job..like every single time I try to quit my boss ends up begging me to stay
Expectations are the root of many of our disappointments.
We can get comfortable, and begin to feel entitled towards things in the world. We expect the internet to work everyday, for water to keep running from our taps, for our loved ones to keep loving us, and sometimes for things to work themselves out.
These aren’t entitlements everyone in the world has, so don’t be surprised if they disappear one day.
We enter relationships often with heavy expectations, and sometimes those expectations aren’t easily met. None of us really enjoy having to live up to expectations of others, so why place them on those we care about.
Unhappiness comes when our expectations aren’t met, so at the very least, let’s manage and become aware of what expectations we have, and if they’re even fair.
If we’re going to have expectations, let’s have them towards ourselves, it’s not cool to place the burden of our happiness on others.
