When we entered the relationship with the alcoholic our expectations may have been high. We had a future together and we could weather any storm together. That’s what love is and that’s what we expected. Sadly, it didn’t turn out that way so what are your expectations now?
It’s easy to become bitter about the life you wanted and expected and the reality of how it turned out. Being bitter will not help you move forward and as Leon Brown quotes, “Bitterness is the result of clinging to negative experiences. It serves you no good and closes the door to your future”
You had expectations in the past and now you have an opportunity to go beyond your wildest expectations. You can only have those if you accept that anything is possible now and there’s nothing to hold you back. Or anyone.
Every time I wanted to achieve something or do something for our future together I was almost always met with negativity. “Why do you want to do that?” ” It’s never going to work out” “There’s no point in doing that” He was expecting it to fail and I was expecting to succeed. After a while I gave up expecting success and resigned myself to failure.
It takes courage to believe in yourself again and have positive expectations but trust me, with the right mind-set, you will begin to expect success.
It’s now time to reinvest in your future and …… your expectations.
