Expectation Vs Reality

My sister has told me to not only LOWER your expectations of others, just don’t have any.

Why?

Because I get hurt. You never know what a person is going to do. Just don’t expect anything from them. 🤷🏻‍♀️

My husband said the sweetest thing ever to me earlier. “You can be a jerk, (🤪) but you truly have the purest heart of anyone I’ve ever met.”

😭😭😭😭💜💜💜 he nice sometime.

I am a recovering people pleaser.

I can’t truly be a servant after God’s heart if I am conforming to what the world wants of me.

Jesus said things that shocked people-not out of meanness but out of LOVE. He loves us. He is God.
God should come first.
The moment that shifts. The moment we focus on other people or ourselves, we are wrong.

Remember the WWJD bracelets?

The bracelets may be out of style but that doesn’t mean that mentality is.

I try to fight for what’s right.

I try to love people so much and do so much for others because I KNOW what it’s like to feel unheard and unloved; lost and confused.

I screw up every day.

Please know my heart, I love people and I love them HARD.

Sometimes I forget that because I love people so hard, they automatically feel the same to me.

There I go with those expectations again. 😅😅😅

Alas, they don’t always. That’s okay. They’re not me, they weren’t made like me or they weren’t hurt like me.
Experience brings wisdom and knowledge.

Still my heart breaks a little when I find that’s not true.

Then it breaks a little further because I realize that while there are ppl that don’t love me as I am, there is way more that don’t love Jesus as He loves them.

It’s a sad day today.
