Hey, so how you guys have been? , so today while I was sitting on the bed I thought of many things, and one of them was about “Expectations”, expectations so nowadays we can find so much stuff on the Internet, social media about it , never-ending things is an expectation, so many articles, blogs, videos, podcast and what not you will be seen on the Internet about expectation or expectation v/s reality check, Expectations are a strong belief that something will happen or be the case. More than anything else, our expectations determine our reality. And our expectations also impact those around us.
In a self-fulfilling prophecy, people may rise or fall depending on their expectations and beliefs. Let’s see about today when i was sitting on my bed while i was writting an article, my dad called me and said ” your results are pretty good, but I expect more from you”, in our day to day life we make so many expectations like when am rousing I expect God to make my life better, then going to my guardians expecting them to understand a bit about the life of a teenager, the pressure, give us the freedom, let us do the things which we can do by our own, let’s take our own responsibility I expect them to love us, respect our problems and our nature, in our lives, we expect from the people to whom we don’t even know their name, so once I was in a chocolate shop I was buying candies for my little cousin, and later got to know that I had five rupees less, and I expected and wanted that the shopkeeper will understand my situation and allow me to return the money later, and somewhere the shopkeeper even expected that I will give him the left money, so after knowing the situation he looked at me and asked me some questions about me and then allowed me to take the candies and leave, from day to night we expect so much from every one , from God to humans, humans to animals, animals to nature, so on.
Expectations are beyond something, it might be killing someone to kiss someone, there are both good and bad expectations in our minds, but always follow the good ones and try to work on it too, but how, so, first of all, take a deep breath, and then, whenever u thought of something bad, try to think just opposite to that, and theirs always a way to make things right and think right, except right, and after thinking the good stuff try to maintain it and work on it as hard as you can in a proper good way, and that’s how you will be working on it, so know let us talk about reality, at this moment of pandemic COVID-19, the whole world wants to get rid of it and expects to meet their family, go to schools, offices, go out somewhere, and the whole world expects for each one of us to follow the rules and regulations of the following situation, but if we are just expecting every time from others rather than working on it, it is wrong, so whenever you are expecting always try to work on it too as I said before. There are many good points of expectations like, setting goals (or expectations) motivates us, excites us and makes us want to push ourselves to grow. Managing expectations is not always going to be easy, since there are good and bad sides to having them. We should always remember that certain things might be in our control, while many might not. And there might be some bad but always try to achieve the good one, this is something about your expectations now, what about expecting from others, generally, in my life, I expected so much from everyone but didn’t get any, I might be sad sometimes but then I think is fine because expecting some from others which are not their thing is something really bad, and should not do that, pressure your expectations on others, so I am completely against it, and would not tolerate anyone doing that, and see today if my dad wouldn’t be saying me he expects me to do much better than I’ll be a silly person not taking anything serious in my life, so I do believe in expecting from others but always in a proper and good right way. Sometimes in a relationship, there are problems between the couple, but what if the one couple expects and thinks there’s not my fault he/she should come and apologise to me, whereas the other is expecting the same, which is bad which might create more distance between them which might lead to happen something bad, so always expecting things is not good, sometimes, when we look at big business, personalities or famous, we try and expect ourselves to look and act like them, I don’t know why, as those people have done so much good their so many efforts, time money they contributed everything and here, that’s how they achieved so much and we expect that all of once to act or look like them and there are obvious reasons to fail and that’s hurtful too, which will cure too with the passing time, and then try to work on the right and the good expectations you build and trust me we will achieve it, even when you have your expectations well in hand, it can be difficult to change what others expect of you. Invest some time and energy, however, and you can slowly improve your relationships with others—and with yourself.
