I have been struggling the last few weeks with my purpose. I have no reasons to be unhappy, my life is actually settling down and becoming more stable than it has been in years. I think it all boils down to the expectations I have for myself. I know my strengths and weaknesses and I am ch0osing to focus on the strengths and understand the weaknesses to become the best version of myself.
The main reason I am writing today is because I saw something online today (link below) that gave me great insight and I wanted to share it. I often talk to friends about “expectations” in relationships, and being a numbers and equation person, this article made a lot of sense. In marriage, dating or friendships we need to look at this: Expectation – Observation = Frustration
Bottom line- Let your observations take precedence over the expectations. Go with the flow. Healthy, realistic expectations that are well communicated are ok. But we all know that we don’t communicate most expectations and that they are often unrealistic and no one can meet them, especially not “our way” or how we have it met in our minds which makes us frustrated.
I pray today this helps someone with frustration they are feeling with someone, as it has helped me ❤️
