“Don’t blame people for disappointing you; blame yourself for expecting too much from the wrong people.”
We expect, sometimes, without thinking about anything. We hope people will drive their cars carefully, maintaining all rules. We expect our loved ones will love us back, we expect students will always respect their teacher, we expect our employees will work their best for us, we expect our employer will notice our excellent work, we expect our friends will be with us, no matter what happens, we expect our family will stay together. There are uncountable things that we expect from others.
Sometimes others can't stand up according to our expectations. We need to understand many times we expect from the wrong person. Maybe that person doesn't think about us the way we think about them. Perhaps that person doesn't respect you as you do them. It's not always their fault that they couldn't meet our expectations. Sometimes it's our fault that we expect the wrong person.
