In a world focused on success and ambition, our unrealistic expectations may seem like a necessity. However, high expectations can lead your life down a path of stress, anxiety, and depression. Especially if you don’t meet these expectations.
We all know that life is not fair. That is, your good deed may not be rewarded, just as a bad deed may be paid positively. Therefore, it is better to prepare for any disagreements than for unrealistic expectations on this issue.
1. Opportunities will appear on their own
You may think that you deserve many things: a promotion at work, a new car, the latest mobile phone, and so on. However, you should know that this will not happen so easily. Opportunities don’t magically fall from the sky. You must work hard.
2. I think that people should agree with you
Please stop being offended when people disagree with you. Also, don’t forget that there is only one correct answer, and obviously that is your answer. Allowing everyone to have their own opinion will provide an opportunity for dialogue, and this is good.
3. I think that people understand what you’re trying to say
Don’t think that people can read your thoughts or know what you are trying to say by implication. Be clear and truthful, so you will avoid many problems at work, with your partner, or with anyone else.
4. Going to fail
Many people tend to think that negative thinking prepares you for a possible bad outcome. However, the constant thought that you will fail can play against you, as you may limit your skills or capabilities.
Pessimism is an attitude that doesn’t do us any good, but rather plunges us into a maze with no way out. Pessimism can lead us to live in a vicious circle from which we may not be able to escape. To expect that because of a pessimistic approach you will be ready for any result is simply not correct.
5. we are Sure that material things will make you happy
It is true that material things help us live better. We can enjoy a big house or a nice car, but it definitely only brings instant happiness. To measure life by the material things you have is absolutely wrong. The memories you create are much more important.
6. Think you can change everyone and everything
In this world you can only change one person: myself. So stop putting effort into trying to change others. Don’t think you should “fix people”. There are things that don’t concern us, or at least not enough to cause changes in others.
Waiting for a response, a relationship, or a situation that doesn’t necessarily have to occur is a very common mistake among people. Unrealistic expectations create frustration and therefore make us more unhappy. No doubt it is wonderful to perform them, but it is best to be moderate in your expectations of life, so as not to suffer subsequent disappointments.
