It might seem easy to have expectations in life. I expect the sun to come up in the morning. I expect a room to be illuminated when I flip the light switch.I expect people to stop at stop signs when they drive.
With some things, like the sun, I have a 100% expectation. But that is pretty much it. I can’t always expect there to be electricity, or that people have common sense and not blow through the stop sign. Those kinds of expectations involve a level of trust.
But I have learned in my life that not everything and everyone is trustworthy. So for me, to retain any sort of sanity in this world, I have got to let go of expectations, and just see how everything will play out.
No expectations: it works for me.
