Humans are much too curious for their own good. Each and every single one of us.
We all want answers to every little detail that constitutes this mystery of a life. Answers to tragedies, and hardships, and happy times, and successes. However though, and rather sadly, these what’s, and where’s, and when’s, and why’s, and how’s, and what if’s are much too often left unacknowledged because we hope for the impossible. And you know, this is the reason we’re often left too devasted, disappointed and shocked. For, when we hope beyond hope, we expect beyond expectations, and are disappointed beyond disappointment.
Life has taught me many a times that if I don’t expect, I won’t be disappointed. And slowly, but surely, I’ve learnt to limit my expectations to the point where the results of questions and moments usually surprise me in a pleasant way instead of upsetting me. I’ve come to the conclusion that when we expect too much, the outcome might be, in fact, good, but we’re left blinded by what we want the outcome to be; so, we often forget to appreciate what we already have.
This, is by far, the most important lesson life has taught me.
In the end, life is a constant battle between reality and what we want it to to be. But that’s just how life works it’s magic.
