You can’t get away from it or around it. Each of us create expectations all the time. Sometimes very consciously and other times they populate automatically from the depths of our subconscious. Having expectations is natural and health. When we are in a corner and faced with ultimatums we engage thoughts and actions from our most primitive part of our brain. With those thoughts and actions, our expectations are captured and expressed. In daily life we need to pay attention not only to our own expectations but those which may be all around each of us. Proactively navigating expectations between people results in far better understanding and appreciation of self and others.
