The Makes and Breaks for your Relationship

Posted on: July 18, 2016

What is it about expectation? Expectation is the root of all heartache. If only it is possible to always set low ones, we will be pleasantly surprised all the time by the outcomes. It is impossible though as we subconsciously set and change our expectations.

Recently, with the power vested in my TV by Netflix, I watched some of my favorite childhood TV shows. I naturally had high hopes since they formed some of the fondest memories of my childhood. Unfortunately, I had an epiphany instead that some of them are just mind numbing. No wonder my parents often told me to go outside and play… The TV Shows met my expectations a long time ago, but they never change and adapt to my current taste. Some of them are still great by the way, and I can tolerate the low screen definition of old TV Shows!

Every relationship places expectations on the people involved. Many failed relationships are caused by subconscious expectations that are never met. Knowing what the essential things that you are looking for in a partner can greatly help you find a compatible mate. Of course life always comes with its share of surprises, so the person you end up with may not meet all of your original expectations. However, it’s still important to know what makes a relationship for you, so that you don’t end up in a relationship that ultimately breaks. By knowing what your and your partner’s expectations are, you’ll be able to work together to find compromise.
