someone told me the reason i’m always disappointed,
and ultimately depressed,
is because of my high expectations.
i’ve gone through life getting my hopes up about most things.
i create the “fantasy” scenario of how i’d hope things would work out.
that has been something i’ve been doing for years actually.
i figured that it was better than being pessimistic about life/love.
my parents taught me to wake up everyday and expect a great day.
it seems i might have been going about my life all wrong.
it could explain why i’ve been disappointed consistently.
so i’m starting to wonder…
Should we go through life always expecting the worst?
i don’t mean you wake up expecting bad things to happen,
but realizing that the reality is that it won’t work out.
i’m also wondering…
Do you not put high expectations on everything/everyone,
so that when something amazing does happen,
you’ll actually be pleasantly surprised?
i’m trying to see what’s the right approach from now on.
i feel lost and need some advice to get back on the right track.
