How To Guarantee Happiness!

Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. Don’t over-analyze your relationships. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness. - Leo F. Buscaglia

expectation

You know and I know that our expectations of others are rarely realized! Ever wonder why? That’s not brain surgery either. We are us and they are them. They are their own people, they’re unique, they think differently and view the world quite differently. No wonder they deliver actions quite differently from what we expect! So what to do?

become real

Be real with self first. Know that we must work on self. Be forgiving when others don’t deliver as expected, they’re on their own journey. Cut them some slack, actually cut them infinite slack (the way to peace!)… Be real with them. Genuinely love them, truly listen to them and without fear share self with them. If they don’t respond as expected (!), wait patiently, continue working on self!! Daily Affirmation: Today I AM expectation-less! Recommendation: Love: What Life Is All About by Leo F.

Manu,

Yes, realizing that the other person is on their own journey is the best way to let go of negative, hurtful feelings towards them. Reminding oneself of this whenever necessary is a great way to help heal from a painful separation, and start to move forward again. Thanks for this great advice.
