Eye Witness: An Account of Love

Eye Witness: An Account of Love

The Account:

Like panoramic images, visions

of our love flashes before me.

He is holding me closely,

I’m buried safely in his arms.

We’re walking hands in hand,

slowly taking our strides together.

I’m all smiles, he is too.

The busy world surrounds us,

but we barely notice.

Our world is perfect,

we’re on top of the world.

He and I are on one accord,

at peace, and in love.

We’re making plans for our future.

Life will be wonderful.

We’re unstoppable, unbreakable,

and hopeless romantics …

Our love is perfect.

Wait a minute, what’s this?

Disappointments are misplaced expectations.  We expect from

others a level of commitment they are not emotionally committed

to fulfill. Our level of expectations may be higher than their level

of willingness. Others simply may not have the same amount of

interest to invest in the fulfillment of our expectations.  Because

of this, their shortcoming becomes the cause of our 

disappointment. We may even hold a grudge when our 

expectations aren’t met.

But, instead of disappointments or holding a grudge, we should

take a look at our expectations. Have we set our

expectations too high? Are we sure others are committed

as we are?  Are others clear about our expectations? Even

when there is an understanding between the parties involved

disappointment will occur. The way we react is a sign we did

not have consideration of the possibilities of failure or 

shortcomings. Instead of holding grudges there is a way out…
