When we expect others to be like us

Working on our self-development will open our perception of others and ourselves, especially our close ones. Years ago, I overheard some of my colleagues talking about their husbands and I couldn’t believe what they were saying. I came out of the room I was in and said to them: “you are talking about my husband”. They laughed. The similarities were incredible.

Most people believe that the way they do things is the right way and they don’t take it well when their partners do things differently: even their children.

A lot of frustration and quarrelling can go on until we realise the beautiful energy and time we are wasting. What can we do? In order to assess what is going on we have to accept the situation we are facing as it is. This should be done free from judgements. Then the options will jump out at us and is up to us what we go for. We may be surprised at what we find.

It is good to remember that there is no right or wrong, that all the answers are within us and all we have to do is to find them. If you don’t know how, asking for help is the best thing you can do.
