We did blood typing in our college today! It's where you find out which blood type you are. If I had waited till now, I could've saved 500 bucks, since I paid that much to find out my blood group.... Or was it 50??? I don't remember....
Anyway, it is like I got it double checked! :D Because some of my classmates did not get the blood group which they had got in their report....So yayyy...
So.... I was thinking about how we expect certain things. You know, as people, we think something will happen this way or this person will behave this way and all that... But, almost all the time none of them are right... And when this happens to me, it's very frustrating!
Everybody has expectations. I think it is human nature to expect something. It is built-in. I have no idea whether other animals have this (lol), but I think we all do, don't we?
And this expecting, is what we should try to control. Yes, it hurts when your parents don't bring your favorite food or toy (and they would've already told you that they will bring it....what a bummer) or when you really expect something from a friend and they don't even bother about it... Such situations frustrate us and we react to it in different ways.. If you don't get me, think of a situation where you felt angry or really sad .. Most of the time, it will be because you 'expected' a certain outcome/result and what you got was completely different from it.
What we really need to do is ask ourselves - why am I feeling sad? Or angry?, think on the feeling and express it in a calm manner. There is nothing wrong in expecting, but when you don't get the result you want, you also need to be prepared to face that situation too. Just by blasting off and throwing a tantrum (being an over-grown baby) and spoiling everybody else's moods, you definitely will not get what you expected. It will be much worse... *laugh*
ONLY we humans have this incredible ability to communicate but we still don't know how to use this wonderful ability properly!
And this is one of the main reasons why I hate texting and having long conversations via texting.(conditions apply: when I can't meet the person, I don't have any choice but to text though that's another matter in itself). I mean, dude! you can't see my expressions, you can't know how I'm talking, how can you understand what I am trying to tell you?
For example, this word "right".
Now, you can't know how I read these words and what I am trying to convey through them. Unless I add *sarcastically* next to the third right, everybody will read it as right, and half of the people I know don't even know what sarcastic means...
Riiiiiight.... *lol* Again, proves my point....
oops, I ended up somewhere else..
Hope you all had a great day!!
Lots of Love
Stay Healthy, Stay Happy.
