Break us down.


Sometimes we lose to expectations and then we fall hard, on our face. We deny it, we scream and we look for unseen closure. Thinking of all our hard work, our prayers and our expectations, all failed to nothing. We cheat ourselves. We act. We pretend. Because we know, deep down, that we never really worked hard enough, we lacked. We prayed, yes. We kept expectations higher than necessary, yes. But we failed so we pretend.
We crumble under our own expectations and the carry the weight of those hopes that others have from us. We hide from the truth and the acceptance of our faults. And so we blame. We blame it on every possible option. We break, inside. We doubt and we lose joy. In the end we just sag; unable to carry the weight anymore, of the acceptance and expectations and reality.

  3. Maybe we should lower our expectations to avoid disappointment? But there's also the concept of expecting the best to bring it to life.

    1. It's not about keeping lower expectations, it's about knowing what you expect but pretending you expected a lot more.

  5. True. But there are things beyond your control as well and no matter how much you try to harness those things, they are just uncontrollable. So even with doing everything possible you have to live with the disappointments. Having said that, we must also keep faith in the higher being. He may have a plan different plan for us.
    Also I must tell you 16 hours of load-shedding makes you fail maths. So you can blame it on load-shedding.:P

  6. Firstly, well written Momina :)
    this happens a lot, we expect a lot and if end up with something lower, we get disappointed.
    We should never expect too much from life as its un-predictable and anything can happen :)

    Keep up the good work :)
