Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love.
Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes.
Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally HUMAN. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure. Also remember; committing the same mistake twice is not the sign of a healthy mind. Keep that in mind & keep moving forward. (Not my words).
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Stopping a mother from dropping her kid to school is the worst kinda crap you can slap on someone in the name of protecting environment. Sometimes people go bit too far with these environmental protection related protests. You aren’t allowed to deteriorate normal people’s life. Insulate Britain, protest in front of government officials or government offices where words can reach the right place.)
I am not a superhuman. I have walked the same life path as many others. Character, Truth, Consistent approach, Loyalty, Decency & Respect are way too expensive 2021. And this world is running on a discount sale right now, result is cheap people. Those who come at you will disappoint you one way or other, period.
Inconsistency was there. Disrespect was there. Misunderstandings were there. Inappropriate behaviour was there. Lies were there. Cheating was there. Unacceptable bullshits were playing catch catch. Heartbreak was there.
Good part is; all were there in past past past, my present has nothing but a beautiful life that people can only dream about. My lesson was: have EXPECTATIONS, but only from yourself. Always be the better person. And make your intentions pure. What and who you are is what will be remembered. Pain is inevitable and it will always exist. But if you focus on understanding what you are and what you are feeling, and why you are feeling it, you will overcome it.
The expectations we have often do not correspond with reality, we are disappointed every time this happens. We become disappointed when we expect to be treated as we treat others. When you start to realize that everyone is living at a different stage, thinking differently and making their choices, then you can only accept the fact that people do not share the same mind and heart. When you want to be happy you have to let go of that and start with yourself, be the person you can be proud of, be an example, show respect and understanding. Others may not change, but know that it is not up to you and be proud of how you are. You’ve got so much soul to be handled by someone who has never been passionate. EXPECTATION IS TO BE A BETTER HUMAN FIRST.
