Expectations

 Expectations

Alright so, what is meant by expectations. It's a strong belief that something is gonna happen for sure. But the context in which we'll be discussing it basically means that you've got trust on people around you. We use this emotion of expecting things from people we trust always in our life. We expect so many things to happen daily, right? 

On the other hand, people too have some expectations from us like our parents wants us to get good marks so that we can have a good and comparatively easy life, those beggars on the road expect us to give some money to them, shopkeepers expect us to buy more from them, businessmen want us to invest in their businesses so that they can grow.

Now the other expectation is where you expect things from people, it's the most wonderful one but sometimes it becomes the most painful one too. Well by now you might've already know that people don't always act in the way you want them to and they shouldn't too. They are free to act according to their own will. 

Recently I too expected something but sadly it didn't become a reality. So I had gifted a memorable farewell gift to my batchmates before I left as I changed my college. Coincidently there was freshers party too still to happen in the college. My new college was yet to begin so I decided that I'd attend the freshers party because, why not?

So the thing is, when I left, some people even reached out to me that they'd miss me blah blah, they want me back blah blah, they want to give something to me blah blah. So you know, the child in me was excited for the meet expecting something outta them. That day came and yeah obviously, nothing outta them. The ones who were like, we'll miss you a lot, please come back and blah blah, didn't even care to talk to me, like literally didn't even reach out to me. 

It's not like I'm bitching behind their backs and obviously can't expect too much of a strong bond with batchmates in just those 2 weeks I attended there but dude... what's up with that fake pretend to be caring thing? The most surprising thing is that they reached out to me again trying to give excuses. Why say if you can't do so. I'll be honest, I was disappointed, even if y'all call me selfish, I was just disappointed. A group of 3 friends did gift me a pack of chocolates on the same day I gave gifts and yeah it made me emotional the night I was packing my stuff.

It's not that much of a big deal but I just gave it as an example. We too expect things out of people. It wasn't like I gifted them with a thought of getting something in return but they just inculcated that thought of getting something in return through their words and well in the end nothing even happened. So, yeah things just don't always go the happy way. 

Basically everyone have expectations from everyone in such a way that will benefit them or will be in their favor and yeah it's totally fine and totally makes sense. Obviously why would someone even expect something negative, unless... it isn't for them. A shopkeeper wouldn't expect good for other shopkeepers, a businessman wouldn't expect good for the rest of the businessmen. It's fine, you gotta be a bit of selfish in today's world.

Well it's obvious too that you only expect from people who're close to you to act in the way you want. Well what things you expect from them? You expect them to-

1) Ask how you are and care for you

2) Back you up in difficult situations

3) Enjoy with you

4) Share secrets with you 

5) Always be available for each other 

This topic doesn't have that much stuff about which I can write because everyone has their own personal preferences and ways to live life. So it won't be good for me to go against someone's principles but one thing I personally believe is that life ain't fun if you're not expecting things around yourself. 

Well now, just give a deep thought on whom-whom you've already lost and whom-whom of the current ones are you going to lose on this path of life. Cherish your moments with them.

In life, you will realize that every person you meet will be different. Some will test you. Some will use you. Some will love you and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who will bring out the best in you. They are rare and amazing people who remind you your worth in this world.

It’s just us against us. There’s no need to compare yourself to someone else. Everyone in this world is built different. Everyone has a different mindset, thought process and way of doing things. That’s why no one else is your competitor, you gotta compete with yourself with an aim of becoming better than what you were yesterday. Plan out your stuff and then execute it too. Keep the hope alive as long as you are giving it your all. 

In the end, there's too much to do and learn in this world and our life might be a bit short to do so. Keep on giving yourself breaks so that you don’t burnout yourself. Spend time with yourself and your loved ones. Make many beautiful memories. Care for everyone, have a lot of friends. Enjoy this life as much as you can and keep on developing. Don’t live in regrets. Try to make the most out of your time. Love your life guys, it's the most valuable asset you’re ever going to own.

Alright then guys that's it for today, I hope you enjoyed my blog. See you guys in the next one and See ya for now :)
