Is It Good To Have Expectations?


People have different views on expectations. Some say it’s good to have expectations; others do not expect anything, especially in relationships. Studies show that it is good to have expectations. It's healthy to have expectations of respect, affection, intimacy, time together in a relationship. Being in a healthy relationship means getting your needs met by a person you love and trust.


I agree that it is good to have expectations in everything, at work, home, in all relationships, etc. Met expectations will be beautiful, but unfortunately, it does not work like that all the time. I will use myself as an example; in a particular season of my life, I had high expectations for a specific situation. When my expectations were not met, I felt like I had been robbed of every good thing; I instead became angry and bitter. I felt betrayed.


Fast forward, I know it’s good to have expectations in your relationships Etc, but from my experience, I will not hold anyone accountable if my expectations are not met. To save me from the frustration, disappointment, anger, and bitterness, I will expect much from God. Many of these people we put so much trust and hope in have nothing to give. A person can not provide what they don’t have in them. I don’t know what your views on expectations are? But that’s mine described in a nutshell above.


Shalom,

Imaani
