“Never get too attached to anyone, It will lead to expectations and expectations always lead to disappointments. Anticipating everything and expect nothing.”

Humans have a strong sense of feeling or emotions, we meet a person, get attached to them do many things for them and hope that they will do things in return. That is what we call expectations. Sometimes we know that what we are expecting can never be fulfilled still we expect.

“ Expectation is my favourite crime and disappointment is always my punishment.”
We often cannot accept our mistakes easily, so we tend to blame it on others. When we don’t get what we expected we blame others that I have done so much for him why couldn’t he at least give me this much in return. But we never blame ourselves from expecting. We know that we do things out of love and respect for the other one and we shouldn’t expect anything in return for it, but still we do and get hurt when we don’t receive it. So the person to be blamed for it is we and not anyone else. They don’t even know that we are expecting anything in return from them.

“Disappointment is just the action of your brain readjusting itself to reality after discovering things are not the way you thought they were.”

Learn not to expect anything from anyone. Learn how to forgive people and yourself. Never get too attached to anyone. When you get attached to anyone you expect a lot of things from them and when you don’t receive the things you expected from them you are really hurt and upset. It’s not actually being upset of the fact that they didn’t give you anything nor did anything for you but for the fact that things didn’t end up the way you expected things to be.

“The secret to happiness is low expectations. It hurts to let go but sometimes it hurts more to hold on.”

You should understand the fact that letting go things Is sometimes the best thing for you. You cannot have anything and everything that you love! The best way to have calm and a peaceful life is to let go. Don’t try to hold anything, whether it’s the most valuable things for you. I accept I accept saying something is way easier than following it. Letting go of something that is valuable for you is like tearing you skin apart, but the day you will let it go you’ll feel bad but later realize that it is more peaceful than trying to hold it.
