Expectations vs Reality
We always have to face this bitter truth of our life. Almost every time we expect more than reality and become hurt. To be happy we should try to maintain a balance between our expectations and reality. In many cases the main reason behind all types of depression in our life is not getting the expected outcome or what we desire for. When we wish for something or expect any outcome we should keep in mind the reality. Every time you can't relate your reality with your expectations? Don't be depressed about this. This is a very common phenomenon in everyone's life. Try to take it as a normal event. What you can do is you can minimize your suffering. Try to expect less and try to keep in mind the reality whenever you expect or desire for something. You can call it theory of expectations.
