The Benefits of Not Expecting
It is normal to expect; it is normal to want; it is normal to desire. We are human beings with needs, and they're expressed in desiring, wanting, and expecting. The person experiencing the expectation however believes they are in control — that what they wish for should happen. Since we are never fully in control of everything, there is a probability that what we expect will not be realized. It can lead to disappointment. To feel defeated.
