Trust God and Love People
If there are no expectations, there will be no disappointments.
Disappointment is the feeling of sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations.
Hopes and expectations are used interchangeably, they mean the same thing and the bible tells us in Jeremiah 17:5-8 that whoever puts his hope in man ‘is like a bush in the desert that grows on dry wasteland, on salty ground where nothing else grows and nothing good ever happens to him.’
Humans change, we change everyday for little or no reasons. Our mind is so flexible that even the direction of the wind can change it.
“Who can understand the human heart?
There is nothing else so deceitful;
it is too sick to be healed.” ~ Jeremiah 17:9
Never put your hope in humans, their hearts are deceitful, they tell you one thing and act another.
Friendship is always interesting and good when both friends gain something out of it but the moment one feels he/she ain’t gaining anything from the friendship, he/she starts misbehaving and even back out of the friendship leaving the other disappointed as a result of the expectation that they are ‘best friends forever’.
It is important to love people, treat everyone equally as your friends/ neighbours, show them love, support them, assist them, expect nothing in return and put all your trust in God.
