Dealing with expectations is a frequent topic at meetings.
It isn't wrong to expect progress of myself, good things from
life, or decent treatment from others. Where I get into
trouble is when my expectations become demands. I will
fall short of what I wish to be and situations will go in
ways I do not like, because people will let me down sometimes.
The only question is: "What am I going to do about it?"
Wallow in self-pity or anger; retaliate and make a bad situation
worse; or will I trust in God's power to bring blessings on
the messes in which I find myself? Will I ask Him what
I should be learning: do I keep on doing the right things
I know how to do, no matter what; do I take time to share
my faith and blessings with others?
