I aimed for expecting nothing for a long time. But at the end, I realized that subconsciously I expect things. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Why nothing? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Because I don’t need it..🤩😃😊😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Since my life doesn’t center around the people around me, I just assume and expect the people will be whoever they are and think however they do… 🙂 “You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realize how seldom they do”..

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Acceptance. That some days my brain or body aren’t up to being out and about. I also expect them to trust me not to judge their choices, but be a good friend and listen.

LikeLike Reply Very little actually. It saves me from being disappointed later. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Very true and I appreciate you for having this perspective! Have you always had this view about the people around you? LikeLike Reply It’s an attitude that has developed over the years as I’m learning that people are less inclined these days to keep their word. Other than my family, I can probably count on one hand the number of reliable friends I have. LikeLiked by 1 person I wish nothing but unfortunately I expect too much…acceptance, respect, love, appreciation…but I hope one day I’ll have no more expectations. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply How are these expectations affecting your life? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I am disappointed almost daily. Which frustrates me a lot but mostly with myself because I know that I should not have expectations. I’m aware that I am in charge only of my actions but I suppose that probably with time I will finally understand that my happiness does not depend on others. LikeLiked by 1 person Honesty. It takes a certain type of person to give you honest thoughts/opinions. So many people (rightly or wrongly) bend the truth or outright lie for whatever reason or end. I have been lied to too many times to not wish to be told the truth always. Regardless of whether it isn’t what I want/need to hear. I appreciate my health isn’t brilliant, but having someone lie to me in an effort to protect me isn’t going to help me in the long run. LikeLiked by 4 people Reply That’s true! But people usually don;t think about the long run. They thing and want immediate outcome. It became very hard to be patient these days.

I expect what I give, basically! From the rest of the planet, literally nothing. I learnt how to low my expectations to zero!!!! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Awesome! How did you learn to lower your expectations? LikeLike Reply Because of too many disappointments. I just automatically learnt to expect nothing because I was aware of what had happened before… LikeLiked by 1 person I think it depends on the nature of the relationship. “People around you” could be the postman, a friend, the spouse or the kid. My expectation levels are highly fluctuating in nature. 🙂 ( “from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” LK12:48) LikeLiked by 2 people Reply That’s true. My expectations dropped in time for most people. There is only one person from which I have high expectations (my wife).
