Expectations

Day by day we develop these values and morals that we call “expectations.” We decide who gets to follow them and who doesn’t, it’s quite simple. We also get to say who they are set for and who they don’t apply to. Is that really fair? Well that’s something you have to determine for yourself. How high is your bar of expectations? For your boyfriend? Girlfriend? Best friend? Do they have expectations for you? Do you feel like they are fair across the board? Have you discussed them with the other individual? Are they just for your own controlling purposes? I am firm believer that you cannot have expectations for someone else and have none for yourself, no matter how big or small they may be. I also think that we develop expectations because we want to be a bit controlling without saying it. Maybe you like someone and you don’t want to tell them so you develop these expectations to keep them near, you don’t want to tell someone you aren’t interested and so you develop more harsh expectations for them. At this moment in my life I know I need to reevaluate my expectations of people because I know some expectations are for selfish reasons.

Today is day one! It’s normal and not the same all at the same time. It’s going to be hard and maybe worth it, maybe a light bulb will click on and it’s going to be Day one in a delightful way lol
