One of the sources of misery for us is expectations. When we expect something to be different (a specific situation, person or the world around us), we stop seeing the reality “as it is.” We get imprisoned by our own illusions and wishful thinking. When life doesn’t meet our unrealistic expectations we feel disappointed, even hurt. We waste energy wanting things to be different instead of focusing on finding the solutions that would really improve the situation. In other words, getting rid of expectations can enhance the quality of your life.
