Expectations

Yesterday I called up an old friend,
I thought that we’ll talk on things till no end,
But few seconds in the conversation and he got stuck on something,
It was far more serious than any routine happening….

The topic was his breakup with his girlfriend,
I asked him what was the reason behind the end,
He said it was nothing but expectations,
She said he couldn’t fulfill her specifications,

Now what exactly are expectations,
They are nothing but confirmations of our assumptions,
They are a sense of approval of our behaviour,
If we fulfill them they act as a saviour….

Fulfillment of them decides what we mean to people,
If we fulfill them then great but if we don’t then nothing else matters,
It all boils down to this,
Everything else done by us is given a miss….

Why do we have them in the first place,
Because we know its unfulfillment would hurt us irreparably,
But still people have them and there’s reason for that,
We are not called humans just like that….

It’s absolutely fine to have expectations from people,
It’s not at all lethal,
It depends on people whether to fulfill or not,
Because it depends on the fact that it makes sense to them or not….

We should not judge a person on how much he fulfilled,
Instead his honesty about it should be appreciated,
Because when he met he didn’t promise you anything,
It was you who made up everything…..
