Next time you find yourself feeling frustrated, disappointed, or feeling resentful, it’s likely someone or something fell short of your expectations.
You have a few options…
1. Try shaming, guilting or threatening them into conforming
2. Judge them, blame them and exclude them from your life
3. Surrender your need for control, detach from the pain and let reality be
There are of course all sorts of options in between, but if the equation lacks love, it’s not serving either of you.
"Peace begins when expectation ends." Sri Chinmoy
