Don’t you agree that expectations are the worst?
Whether the other individual is close to us or not, in our mind, we have framed some kind of expectation from that other individual.
Irrespective of the fact that we have provided something of value to that individual or not.
We still expect.
Firstly, when you gave with an expectation, that means your motive wasn’t pure, but one with intent for yourself.
Secondly, what is it with people thinking something will just be handed over to them?
Whether it is someone’s time, whether it is to pick their brains on something, or whether it is asking something for free.
And every time we expect, it’s faced with disappointments.
Disappointments for yourself.
Because we were the one with undeserving expectations.
And yet, we don’t lose hope and we start with the expectations again.
Such is human nature.
Wouldn’t it be better to understand that no one owes us anything?
Wouldn’t it be better to understand that you’d rather give something of value with no malicious intent?
Wouldn’t it be better to ask than to expect?
