The Vicious Cycle of Unmet Expectations

How many times are you going to endure the torture of unmet expectations?!?


Expectation: a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future.

Many couples are disappointed because their expectations are unmet.

Maybe you're saying, "I've tried to make my partner view me in the way I want to be viewed. I've tried to get my partner to treat me the way I want to be treated."

But, when you expect one thing to happen and then it doesn't, what happens next?

Do you try to blame it on your spouse because he/she didn't do what you expected? Do you sit around wishing your mate would do what you think is the right thing?

•  Do you get mad?
•  Do you get frustrated?
•  Do you get disappointed?
•  Do you feel hurt?
•  Do you feel bitter?
•  Do you feel upset?

You're not alone. We all feel it at some point or another. And we make it worse when we have new expectations. 

Here's the crazy thing: expectations are essential. They set the tone for the relationship.

At the same time, when you have expectations, you have assumptions. And when you have assumptions, you have miscommunication. 

If being in this position feels like an endless cycle of torture that you can't escape, you need to join Tuesday webinar.
