If you expect nothing from anybody, you’re never disappointed.
- Sylvia Plath (1932-1963)
Farewell to your Better Self
Inspired by Sylvia Plath (1932-1963)'s quote, "If you expect nothing from anybody, you’re never disappointed". The titled responsion is
Everyone's expected to get something out of life, and if you expect nothing from anyone, you're not going to. Most people start off their lives by expecting more out of their lives. The problem with this is that it usually isn't much.
When you expect too much, you'll always have some regrets. If you expect to be rich and successful, you'll probably be. If you expect to have a perfect family, your kids will never be anything less than perfect.
The thing that's most interesting about this, is that if you expect nothing from anyone, you're never disappointed. There's no reason for anything good to happen in your life. Your expectations are just way too high!
So what happens if you expect nothing from anyone? Do you feel worthless? Do you feel like you're always missing out on something because you're not the right kind of person for everything? Do you wonder if you ever will find true love?
You don't have to worry about this at all. I know because I felt like this when I was young. I thought that if I didn't find what I wanted, I would have nothing. I felt like I had nothing in my life because I didn't have what I thought I deserved. That was the biggest mistake I could've made.
It turned out that I didn't have things because I was doing them the wrong way. I was doing things right when I shouldn't have. I should have listened to my parents and worked hard at school. I shouldn't have spent so much money. I should have worked in a factory or something like that instead of wasting my time on the internet.
I did everything I was told to do, and was a success. But that didn't make me happy. What made me happy was my family. My parents had made sacrifices for me to get where I am today. Even if they didn't get what I deserved, they put me where I want to be.
If you expect nothing from anyone, you're never disappointed. When you give someone a little, and they give you so much, you'll be thankful for all of it. Because you'll know you're truly appreciated.
Sometimes you'll think about it and realize that you were wrong. But sometimes you'll think that it would be such a waste of time to work so hard to get something. Or you'll think that you deserve it because you're so lucky. Maybe someone else has more money than you, so why don't you ask for it?
Then you think about what you would give back. If you want to give back, think about who you'd give it to. That's the best way to do it. Think about who you would like to receive things, and see if it would be easier to give it to them than it is to receive it. or give it to yourself.
If you expect nothing from anyone, you're never disappointed if you don't receive anything you want. You can't expect anything when you don't want it. And there's no reason why you should expect what you don't want. to receive what you don't want. When you get what you want, you're truly glad you got it.
Be thankful for what you do have in your life. Don't give it up.
If you expect nothing from anyone, you're never disappointed. So go out there and take control of your life and make it happen. Don't wait until your mind is set on a certain outcome. When you do, you'll have an opportunity to show people that you're grateful for all of the good that you've received, and all that you're having in your life. People will recognize this and will start to feel thankful as well.
