My expectations of others and others of me. I am sure most of us have experienced the sadness of others not meeting our expectations; hence, we come to believe not to expect much from others. I used to be like that; I would not expect anything from someone because I did not want to be disappointed. I also hated the feeling of disappointing others. However, things have changed since I came to realize that nothing is in our control. If others do not meet my expectations and if I do not meet the expectation of others, there is a reason. If I believe that God is in control of everything then I will not experience disappointment or guilt. I won’t blame you and I am not to be blamed. This may seem that I am disregarding our sense of responsibility but there is something out there that is bigger than you and me. This also does not mean I will stop expecting the best of others and not wanting others to expect the best of me BUT this expectation will rest within the boundaries of the GOD I serve, who rules the heaven and earth.
