We build resentments because we're not getting what we want, or because we're not getting what we want when we want it. It may be a job promotion we thought we deserved, attention from a specific person or even a "thank you" we didn't receive. Whatever it is, it almost always started with an expectation. . We place expectations on people, places and things that are out of our control all the time. . Expectations of others is the biggest culprit. We have no control over whether or not someone shows gratitude for something we did. Was the good deed done out of compassion, or for the "thank you" we never received? Did we communicate our needs properly, or are we expecting someone to intuitively know that we need attention? . Expecting people to behave exactly the way we would only leads to let downs and resentments. . When we allow people to be who they are, and accept each situation for what it is, we are free from resentments. We don't have to agree with the outcome, we only need to accept it. . "Resentment is the "number one" offender. It destroys more alcoholics than anything else." – The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous . Next time you're feeling frustrated about something, remember that the situation is always neutral. It's your thoughts about it that label it good or bad. . "When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it, all else is madness." Eckhart Tolle . . #expectations #resentment #fear
