Expectations Increase Disappointment

Posted by Val Fox on April 6, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Today's post features the letter "E" for Expectations. I heard it said once that our peace of mind is in direct response to our expectations of others. I have found this to be true in my life. Expectations of others can disappoint, frustrate and be a setup for resentment. Letting go of expectations of outcomes can free us and others to be real, reducing the pressure to perform a certain way.

The following quotes are thought-provoking views about our Expectations. Enjoy.




Thanks for visiting today, friends. Tomorrow's post will feature the letter "F" as we continue the April A to Z Challenge.  If you'd like to learn more about this blog hop just click on the link below to learn more.

I am always impressed when I see your "different flowers, one meadow", and it strikes me how true that is. I like the Expectations=A Planned Resentment. Something for me to keep in mind. Thanks
