Whether we are putting our dream expectations onto others, or others are expecting us to birth their dreams it doesn’t matter – how can someone other than the ‘dreamer’ really give the dream the life it needs? In most cases they can’t! Expectations are an interesting concept, one that has had me in deep thought over these past seven years. I am yet to find anything positive about an expectation as they tend to block the flow of energy.
It’s interesting living with someone who you aren’t happy with – trying all different ways to change the situation, to even change them so that you can be happy. I tried all of this and more, I was desperate to be happy. I played with this from different angles – wanting to change me, change him etc… What I did realise was that by trying to expect someone else to love me, make me happy, support me etc was unrealistic, because often these expectations never happen.
If at anytime we are left feeling disappointed, then we have had an expectation placed on the person or situation. If we didn’t have an expectation, then there would be no disappointment – do you agree?
