What Will Happen If I Let It Go?

“Things are as they are, we suffer because we imagined different.” Anonymous

 

Our expectations of other people and our attachments to how we think the circumstances of our lives should be get us in an awful lot of trouble.

We expect that our husbands will notice when we’re overwhelmed and that he’ll step in and do something about it so that we feel some relief…

The Danger of Our Expectations. A Very Personal Story.

“Expectations will steal the gifts that are sitting right there in front of you.” Jada Pinkett Smith
