I decided a long time ago to not get offended.
To not care if someone does not like me.
To not be a victim.
To not be entitled.
Life is so much more enjoyable that way. When you take expectations off of other people and decide to not let your joy be stolen by humans who need healing, it is very freeing.
I have an expectant spirit for what God will do in my life. I have expectations of my children and their behavior. But as far as relationships, friendships, and business partners go...I have no expectations on other people.
If everyone would just remember that when others are nasty, rude, and and have a victim mentality, it is because THEY need healing.
Expectations are a recipe for hurt and disappointment. Guard yourself.
