The first thing to stop expecting from other people is validation. We all want to feel validated and appreciated by others. However, we cannot expect others to constantly validate us or our choices. Ultimately, we need to learn to validate ourselves from within.
The second thing is for people to read your mind. No one can truly know what you are thinking or how you feel unless you communicate it clearly. Do not expect others to intuitively understand your needs or wants. Use your words to express yourself.
The third thing is for people to be responsible for your emotions. How you feel is your own responsibility. While others can influence your mood, you choose how to react. Do not expect others to manage or soothe your feelings.
The fourth thing is for people to be perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. Forgive others for not being flawless and accept that imperfections are part of human nature. Having realistic expectations will lead to healthier relationships.
The fifth and final thing is for people to fulfill your needs and desires. You cannot rely on others to complete or satisfy you. Take responsibility for your own happiness and fulfillment rather than expecting others to meet your every want.
In conclusion, having realistic expectations for other people's words, actions and responsibilities will help you avoid disappointment. Focus on validating yourself, communicating clearly, and taking responsibility for your own emotions and needs.
