Expectations usually, that's why I try not to expect anything from anyone but myself.
it's the expectations that usually lets us down,., the higher we expect, the painful it gets when it fails,., the we cannot hold others accountable, for whatever they do is beyond our control,., everyday, people change, so shall our expectations be.,. for everything is of temporal state after all..
we ar powerless over people ,i dont no what other people tink or what goes on in there mind and like wise for them to know whats going on in mine ,is tis confusing
Both. I expected a certain standard of behavior but didn't get it. That person then let me down.
At one point in life is was me trying to hold another accountable for my expectations. Hard lessons teach us much, and since then I've learned to enjoy and rejoice in what is there, and try to have no expectations.
So true, and often not an easy lesson to learn.
Expectation from myself
I had too high expectations of other people. I'm not going to hold anyone accountable for my life, even though many people have greatly and significantly negatively impacted my life. Too many other people are playing the blame game, the let's not accept personal responsibility. I don't want to be like that. I want to face my life full on. Some people may think I'm not being responsible, that I'm making excuses, but I'm not. I won't answer to the general public; I will only answer to those on a need to know basis. I won't make a mockery and side show out of my own life.
It is both while we may say one is only accountable to self we expect certain accountability from others children , partner .
both. I was a fool to trust him.
Great Question! Most the time it is my expectations that aren't met, not the individual who I impossed such demands on.
You seem so (let down) and upset. Why?
to deep for me so pass.
