Yeah, so we all have certain expectations in life. It might be either expecting a good GPA or a Job offer or anything else. Keeping expectations is human tendency…but what exactly harms is becoming sad if those expectations are not fulfilled. The other day I was sad…why? I expected something good but instead something bad happened. I was sad for like sometimes when the positive part of my brain told me…”WHY THE HELL ARE YOU SO DEPRESSED…YOU HAVE ANOTHER DAY TO LIVE YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT”. This really got me thinking that we as humans tend to develop expectations so deep that when they aren’t fulfilled we feel there is no point to life or nothing is gonna work out. WHY?
Honestly though I feel we should stop keeping expectations…yea people say if you have expectations in life you would be able to achieve your dreams and goals and blah blah blah. But seriously? Just think about. If you work hard and don’t expect anything that would probably make you happier than working hard and expecting the best.
Well at times you are placed in situations when you can’t help but like have to keep expectations. At those times what I usually do is…KEEP THE LOWEST EXPECTATION!
It’s simple…suppose you just gave an exam…you really don’t want to expect anything but are kinda anxious and scared. Tell yourself “THE WORST THING TO PROBABLY HAPPEN IS ME FAILING OR MAAM INSULTING ME” ok that’s ok…I mean honestly when you get your result…if the worst imagined situation did not occur then you would be Happy right? Because your expectations were not extremely high. This small tip would help you stay happier and enjoy life one step at a time.
Why is it that as a child we are not bothered if we win a competition or lose…we just enjoy it…winning or losing is dependent on factors such as LUCK, HARD WORK, etc.
Enjoy the bittersweet moments of life than complaining of the process. Enjoy the process. 🙂
UNTIL NEXT TIME! 😀
