Unmet Expectations

Forgiveness. Easy to preach about yet abounding in hypocrisy because it’s hard. A nice easy practical step: forgive people for not meeting your expectations. Don’t tell them about it, don’t share it with them, just do it. Be brutally honest about your expectations, makes it easier. At this stage, you are practicing forgiveness without needing anything from the person. Begin unwinding judgments and setting people free internally.Besides, most of the time forgiveness ends up being about yourself anyway. Might as well start tidying up where the risk-reward for your bumbling attempts has limited collateral damage.
