Expectations can ruin your relationships

.

Encarta Dictionary: English (U.K.)

Expectation – anticipation of something happening, a confident belief or strong hope that a particular event will happen.

I find that ‘expectations’ are involved in many relationship problems. We have expectations of ‘how things should be’, ‘what people should do’, ‘how we should be treated’……

Did you notice one word repeating itself in that sentence – SHOULD.

Should is not a useful word if you are thinking about relationships, the other word that causes trouble is MUST!

We beat ourselves up with ‘shoulds’, ‘musts’ and ‘expectations’,( SME’s), we beat other people up with our SME’s and we get beaten up by other people’s SME’s.

Guilty or not guilty?
