It seems like whenever I am disappointed, it is because my expectations have not been met. I'm particularly talking about expectations I set for other people. That is right, I set expectations for others and then when they are not met, I am extremely disappointed. It's ridiculous! I can't control other people, but when they don't act/react the way I expect them to, I feel horrible.
This is a fairly new realization I made, and I feel like it is valid. But it's also kind of harsh. Does this mean I simply can't count on anyone, or maybe I am just counting on the wrong people?
What are your thoughts on this topic? What do you do when people disappoint you? Is it all their fault, or is it your own fault for setting expectations in which you have no control over?
