Expectations

I know I have written before about letting go.  Specifically I want to write about letting go of expectations.  Let’s talk about people caring or not caring.  I know if I make the statement, “People don’t care”, there will be an uproar.  But, they really don’t.  Let me explain.  When I say that people don’t care I think I really mean that I cannot expect people to care.  This is a neutral position.  This is truly letting go of expectations.  People either care or they don’t and there is much gray area in between those two poles.  In fact, I doubt there is anyone alive who doesn’t care about something.  We all care about something.

“People don’t care” really just means that they don’t care about what I need for them to care about.  They don’t fulfill my expectations of them.  This is the letting go.  There is great freedom in letting go of expectations.

“But I have to expect certain things of certain people.”  Do you?  Do you really?
