Where to begin, who to blame or what to do!! Expectations expectations.. more often than not ends in disappointment. Personally I was on a never ending roller coaster-ride of disappointments one after another until I decided to confront myself. Why was I almost always the one to be handed the short end of the stick or better yet be presented with a double edged sword? At that very moment it ( I'd like to call it wisdom) hit me like a ton of bricks! As I mentally ran a slideshow of all the times I fell on my face, was betrayed, lied to or let down; it was finally sinking in that i had none other than myself to blame! I removed all subjectivity and I analyzed each event to the best of my memory. my stomach twisted at the fool I had been and I allowed myself to accept the reality of it all. I delusional and created it all in my head! I gave people the benefit of the doubt, thought the best of everyone, and when I became fond of them I allowed my emotions to blur my judgement. The onus was completely on me for creating seeing people from my point of view. How can it be anyone else's fault that you view the world from your own perspective and that perspective will only reflect the person you are! You will only see yourself in the expectations that you set for others and only expect from them the good deeds that you would do for them in a heartbeat Hence, if you find yourself on the end of disappointment; chances are you are blessed with a clean conscience, good heart and a kickass personality! It sucks that not everyone is as awesome as us! But at least our view of the world isn't dark and gloomy! We get the occasional rainy day here and there but for the most part we enjoy the sun with a tall glass of piña colada!
Yes the world can be unfair but we have to appreciate that gift we have been blessed with! The ability to see the best in the worst of people and to be the sun that comes out after a horrible hurricane! Without us the world would only be filled with horrible, conniving and miserable people. Now who would want to live in a place like that! NOT ME! How about you? Like for no and comment for yes! Thank you
