Have you ever been with a guy that just never seemed capable of getting their shit together while you were dating? If you have, you know how frustrating it can be to feel let down by his inability to step up to the plate and handle his business. Maybe he procrastinates a little too much, doesn’t take his future as seriously as he should, or is just flat-out lazy. The day comes when you finally dump him, and it seems like the huge weight of his poor decisions has been lifted off of your shoulders. Good riddance…right? Fast forward to the future and your ex looks hauntingly good and doing even better. In fact, he’s somehow morphed into the man you’ve always wanted – but he’s now that man with another woman.
Hello everyone…I’m Monique. A blogger, self-published author, college graduate (BBA and MBA holder), Libra, and a woman in love. Not to toot my own horn, but I think I’ve got it going on! I have a job that I love, travel often, have friends that I adore, and drive the car that I want. I know that some people would beg to differ, because with all of my accomplishments I’m still an unmarried, childless woman that’s pushing 31. Something has to be wrong with me right?

I wrote this blog a few years back at my sister site Spot86 that I wanted to share with you guys. Life is a beautiful thing. One thing is for sure, nothing is perfect and nothing is guaranteed. So many things can happen, so many things can change. With that being said, why do we make things difficult by having so many expectations? Are you still waiting for that guy that keeps playing games to change? Do you wonder why that one friend is never truly excited for you? Does frustration take over you the minute you think about how hard your new job or school has been? Are you hard on a family member because they are not living up to your expectations? If any of this is the case, you are in essence, setting yourself up for disappointment. The truth is; having too many expectations is not that great.
