Browsing Facebook I was struck by how negative a lot of the posts were. Maybe its just a good place to vent?
Seems that it all about expectations. And I am just as guilty of that. We expect things to be perfect. For example We expect everyone to drive safely and considerably. When they don’t our expectations are let down and … Road Rage!! 🙂
But experience should tell us that its not the case. People don’t drive like that – we see that everyday? So why do we wake up expecting it all to be perfect today?
If we accept that is the situation we won’t be let down.
And in the end we are talking about situations that we usually can’t do anything about. So we can be in a bad situation and by being stressed about it we only make it worse in all manner of ways.
When we are in a bad place change something. Either change the situation or if that’s not possible change your reaction to it. Not easy – but possible.
Until we accept that we can change our reaction we are just leaves blowing on winds of chance and emotion.
