Dear Lovely Soul,
Most people do the best they can.
Most people are doing all that they can to make their way through the world and make good decisions and to love and to feel loved.
Sometimes we expect more out of people than they could possibly give. Sometimes we think others think exactly as we think, and we expect them to react the way we would react, behave the way that we would behave and to do what we would do in any given situation…and then we are disappointed and jaded when they don’t.
Take pressure off of yourself, dear friend, and drop the expectations you have of others. We can never know what is going on in a person’s life, in their heart. We can never know what their intentions are or what they are truly thinking or planning. Expecting, assuming and creating conditions just leads to pain for everybody.
Let’s just love each other…it is the way to peace.
YOU are loved. You really really are.
