68- Expectations vs. Reality

When we meet someone new for the first time, we don’t see them for who they are. We only see our expectations of who we think they are.

As we spend more time with the person, the gap between our expectations of who they are and the reality of who they really are — has the opportunity to narrow — But only if we allow ourselves to face the pain of disappointment and surprise of the unexpected.

More often than not, reality does not care about our expectations.

The longer we let our expectations blind us, the greater the pain when reality eventually catches up.
