  1. I read once where it’s our expectations that cause a great deal of suffering for everyone.

    Imagine having to control everything/everyone in your environment in order to feel at peace. Think Jack Nicholson playing the part of a man with crippling OCD In “As Good as it Gets.”

    To think that we all fall on that OCD spectrum, as it’s a symptom of fear, or more accurately, the extreme end of the flight response.

    So, whilst we may be disappoinited when our expectations aren’t met, and awareness doesn’t always lead to right doing or saying, at least you ARE aware.

    Hard to be fully conscious and perfect all the time. As long as you put things right when you wrong, you’ll hooefully stay ahead x
