Fellow readers here are five things you should stop expecting from others this festive season.
1. You cannot expect others to respect you if you don't respect yourself.
Respect is shown in your behaviour and the way you treat yourself. Love yourself and love will come back What you give to others is what will give you back.
2. If you have no idea what you want, don't expect others to tell you what to do.
People won't bother to advise you if they don't know what you want. They may offer suggestions but they're unlikely to offer you advice.
3. Expecting others to read your mind is unrealistic.
People can't figure out what's going on in their minds. You can't even know what's going on in other people's minds. Therefore communicate what's bothering you and a solution might be found.
4. Don't expect others to stay when they're ready to leave.
You cannot hold onto people when they want to leave and having lifelong friends is a blessing. Sometimes you have to be alone, but it gives you strength and experience.
5. Stop expecting others to give up everything to help you.
Your family and friends love you but have their priorities. Even if you need them right away, don't expect them to drop everything, sometimes you have to get up again yourself.
