More often than not, at the most unexpected times in our lives we meet someone. You hit it off, text all day, meet them every day it becomes so routine that a couple of hours without talking to them makes you feel all weird. But then no matter how much you thought that it wouldn’t change, it does. Texts become less frequent. Meeting goes from every day to alternate days to once a week to once in a few weeks. It makes you feel sick, angry, annoyed.
You know what causes this feeling? Expectation. You expected it to never change. You expected that person to stay around forever. Shakespeare once said, “Expectations are the root cause of disappointment.” Truer words have never been spoken. How you feel is your own responsibility, your own burden to bear. Instead learn to enjoy things in the moment. Enjoy the journey while it lasts. Nothing lasts forever, not even life.
