Expectations are killers - they set us up for disapointment again and again. We are so often entrenched in what we think should be happening and what we want to happen that we miss what is actually happening.
We set up expectations for someone and we then project them onto that person then when they dont act according to our expectations we are disapointed.
Opportunites can be missed because of our illusion of reality through our expecations. We need to let go of our expectations and see what is actually happening so we dont miss out on life.
