What is this life for you?
Is it a series of days of the journey to conquer the goal? When you were born and raised, your family expected you to study hard and well, while the society expected you to succeed and achieve material values as much as possible. To gain recognition and approval from others, you also turn these expectations into your expectations as well.
Do you ever get tired of not being yourself when you have to live it up to others’ expectations?
When you want to be a businessman or a consultant, but you have to study to be a doctor for your family tradition? When you love to draw and write but you study engineering? And one day, suddenly you feel lost of freedom in your life. You don’t know where you’re going.
Dear friends, that’s how you feel when you have to live up to the wishes and expectations of others.
Have you ever thought that you also put a lot of your expectations on the people and things around you? If my husband could make money a little better, how good would it be? Why would my child talk all the time but he wouldn’t listen?,… You get upset every time your loved one doesn’t act according to your wishes. You get upset all day when your co-worker or partner doesn’t cooperate with you.
Life becomes heavy when it is filled with unsatisfactory things. That’s because you unconsciously put your own joy and happiness in others’ hands. Only when they do what you want will you feel happy and meaningful. Not only are they losing their freedom, but you are also losing yours.
True freedom only comes when you no longer place your expectations on others.
You no longer expect them to follow your wishes.
You unconditionally accept every action and outcome as it is.
You enjoy the beauty of the natural order of creation and the universe. You no longer have conditions for your happiness. Whether others act according to you or not, you are also responsible for your own joy and happiness. Then your life will become light, peaceful and liberated.
Diviners wish you always to have true freedom, inner peace on your journey to discover life and develop yourself. Please comment below how you feel and share it if it is meaningful to you and the world.
