Unrealistic expectations cause nothing but heartache, anger, and resentment. After yesterday's "Great American Eclipse", social media was flooded with disappointment.
"Is this it?"
It's as if people had set their expectations of what to experience on par with some eclipse scenes from sci-fi movies and were disappointed the Earth didn't go black.
Just like in life, our expectations influence our outlook. More often than not we become disillusioned because people and events don't meet our expectations.
This isn't fair because expectations is us placing OUR worldview on others and things with the expectation that they'll conform. Then when they don't, we get pissed off at the outside thing.
Listen in to learn how reality television sets people up for disappointment and why living by your standards is a better way than living by expectations.
