All of us have expectations…of the people around us, our environment, our life, our world…and somehow, we are almost always disappointed by what comes our way…
My dad always told me, “You have the right to ask, and let me have the right to say NO”.. So, before I ask something off someone, I would have a mental dialog of what’s coming my way and be prepared for the worst, but, somehow, sometimes I am disappointed by what comes my way..
I am in the teaching profession, and was discussing ‘conflicts’ yesterday, and we were discussing this term – ‘Expectations’!!!
Why do we always expect people to be there for us? Why do we expect that people will oblige? Why do we expect people to be nice to us? Why do we expect people to be happy for us?
Do we go by, “We have the right to expect, and people have the right to let us down!!”
