Two quotes with regards to this blog thought.
“When you release expectations you are free to enjoy things for what they are instead of what you think they should be.”- MH
“You may not be a priority in my life, but you will always matter.”-CS
I believe how we say things to other people in our lives may not always be interpeted as we wished them to be. But, our actions always will. We can talk love, honour and respect, till we are blue in them face, then turn around and with one stab in the back action, literally kill every word we spoke.
For myself, this is what I call, speaking from both sides of one’s mouth..all the pretty words flow freely from one side and septic thoughts spew from the other.
For this past half decade of my life I have witnessed and been on the recieving end of both and today can laugh. I have learnt not to have expectations of others and for my life to be truly happy, it is me, myself and I who have become the priority of it. Yes, I do have one rule I live by…my time and effort must be matched in any relationship..family or friend. When it is not, I use my free will to walk away.
Do you have great expectations of others and make someone else a priority in your life?
P.S. As children my children were priority. Thats a given. Then they grew up.. Plot twist!!
