once again.

I wish people could do without expectations.

And is having a expectation , to a certain degree, being bias or judgmental? Depending on the situation,of course.

If,lets say, you’re out on a date, met him once or twice, don’t really know him well but he was nice and stuff the first two times you met him. Then you build up this expectation of him being a perfect gentleman. But in the end, he’s opposite of what you expected him to be. Leading to disappointment, in the end. Are you really being judgmental?

In the case of uncertainty, expectation is what is considered the most likely to happen. An expectation, which is a belief that is centred on the future, may or may not be realistic. A less advantageous result gives rise to the emotion of disappointment. If something happens that is not at all expected it is a surprise. An expectation about the behavior or performance of another person, expressed to that person, may have the nature of a strong request, or an order.-wikipedia.

In that case, we’re setting up ourselves with a whole string of disappointments for the rest of our lives. Cause if you do notice, in almost everything we do, we set expectations. We expect things to be done our way, we expect people to be on time…blah blah blah…

And can we ever be well equipped to fulfill an expectation?

We can if you really think about it.

And you’re thinking “why is she talking about this?”. I heard this on TV and agreed with it, 100%.

“We all think we’re going to be great

and we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren’t met

but sometimes our expectations sell short…

You got to wonder why we cling to our expectations.

Because its the expected that just keeps us steady, still.

The expected…. its just the beginning.

The unexpected is what changes our lives……” – Grey’s anatomy,s3,ep13.
