Standards

For the most part, I hold myself to very high standards.  I tend to hold other people to the same standards.  But I am realizing that most people disappoint, which ends up hurting my heart, though no one done this intentionally.  Maybe I should lower my standards, I’ll be disappointed less.

  1. What kind of standards are you talking about?

    I find that when we put expectations on people that are not communicated to them, we are almost always disappointed. And still when we do communicate them, we still can be disappointed.

    The Shack had some cool things to say about expectations in relationships.

    • Andrew and I were given The Shack for a wedding gift, we just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.
      I think I just expect people to exhibit a little more self control and less like they have something to prove.
