Expecting the change!

Sometimes I feel I’m being stupid by expecting people to change who need not change just for me and things to change which never change for anyone. Leaving all the expectations behind and moving forward in the day to day life is not as easy as we say it. Of course we eventually lose the respect we have for such people and belief in such things but one must take care that he or she does not lose too much of either. Everyone and everything shall be given excuse and tolerance, respectively, considering the human characteristics in case of people and natural phenomenon in case of things. It takes a bit of control on one’s own mind to carry along with such situations and to leave behind such expectations. At the same time it takes a lot of self-discipline and determination to be practical as much as possible in the contemporary world. Not everyone and everything is born or made for you in the world. The sooner we realize this fact, the better we perform with cool mind and complete heart. Otherwise we will be lost in the logistics which are for no one’s rescue.

As we are born we must live. As we live we must contribute. Sitting back and expecting people and things to change for us will help the least.

A very realistic approach to life. One should be what one is without putting on false facade and do what is right as per own conscience. Before one expects others to change, it must be borne in mind would he or she do it for others?

Take care

I wish it was that simple. I try to do it and fail often. Mind doesn't compromise. Nice post though.
