“Unhappiness is best defined as
the difference between
our talents and our expectations.”
Edward de Bono
EXPECTATIONS: You cannot honestly blame them on someone else. They are a combination of your dreams and fears, aspirations and failures. In some ways they may best define who you are. That is, if you can figure out what they are and define them in the first place. Your expectations are uniquely your own. Sure they might be very similar to someone else’s, perhaps anyone else’s. But the potency of yours will be different from all others. How deeply you will be satisfied if they are met…or how devastated you will be if they are not—that is all yours. What you do with this awareness, providing there is awareness, can be of inestimable value to you. But you have to work at that awareness. It doesn’t just happen.
