The word “expectation” is probably one of the most powerful words in the world. We all have our fair share of expectations from others that we like to live on and be content with. Keeping expectations from others is not a bad thing, as long as your expectations are met. But in a realistic world, most of the time our expectations are left unfilled and are forgotten. This article is for you guys to be stronger and happier with your own selves and to expect less from everyone else.
As always, I’m going to be using my own life’s examples to give you guys a better outlook on expectations. These are the ten things you should never expect from others, no matter how close you think you are with them. Hope you guys are enlightened after this.
10. Don’t Expect Them To Agree With You
This may sound harsh but it’s the truth, most people are not going to agree with you in life. By expecting people to agree with you, you’re putting yourself in a very weak position. Everyone has their own point of views on things and it’s really hard to find someone with matching states of mind (you’re really lucky if you actually do). You, as an individual, are an amazing person. You have every right to be happy and to be heard. You deserve to live your life your own way. You can only achieve these things if you let others do it their own way too. You need to approve of your own decisions and you shouldn’t expect others to agree with them. That’s one of the ways of getting ahead in life, and the reason why I am where I am today. When I was leaving med-school, people told me that I’m not doing the right thing. That I shouldn’t pursue my dreams as a webdeveloper and I should just follow what everyone else follows. But I didn’t expect them to agree with me so I happily did whatever I had to do. And when I look back at all of it today, I could not be more glad of my decision. So make your own decisions, don’t expect approvals.
