Why “Expectations from others” is a lost game and how you can win it...

Unmet expectations often are the birthplace of negative emotions within us and are detrimental to our mental peace.

Others will not treat you, the way you treat them or the way you want them to treat you. And, this is why when you expect, you hand over the remote control of your emotions into their hands.

You need to understand that someone is not liable to do something for you, even if you have done a lot for them. 

Do something because you want to, not because you expect something in return. By expecting something in return, you are putting your mental health at stake, which is definitely not worth it.

However, it’s impossible for the human mind to operate without expectations. Subconsciously, we assume things in the future will behave as they did in the past. With that being said, it is not impossible to control our expectations or at least limit them.

Instead of focusing on things out of your control, focus on those that you can control; your thoughts & beliefs.

Make it a habit to question yourself on your actions for someone, to become self-aware.

Being self-aware hands you the power to mold your thoughts the way you want them to be.

This way, you can be conscious of your expectations and can get rid of them as well.

Finally, accept others the way they are, and see the world without any filter. 

Let go of your expectations and see how your life becomes more peaceful & happy.
