No expectations? Life is great that way!
You live blithesome. You become emotionally and mentally independent.
And life of such independence may be tough to realize, but is definitely a great and worthy endeavour.
Your grip on your life begins to tighten and you gain a great deal of control over what and who can cause any turbulence or tribulations in your life.
When you give up expecting, life simplifies. It really does. Complications begin to efface. Resultantly, there would be lesser entanglements and complications to bring you down.
Expectations equal dependence which are prone to disappointments. Independence on the other hands is key to abundance of joys to celebrate with minimal impediments to pilfer those joys away.
