Apparently I enjoy making premature declarations on life. We’re talking friendships, career opportunities and the list goes on. Example: If xyz doesn’t happen by Friday, then it’s off.
Truth be told, I don’t enjoy making premature declarations but admittedly, I do it when my emotions are involved.
Being one step ahead of things gives me the ability to cut someone out if they fall short of my expectations.
More times than not, I’m wrong about my ‘out of the gate’ assumptions. This is a defense mechanism I have yet to delete from my brain.
In general, humans don’t try to disappoint one another; we all just have different expectations and different life forces pulling us in various directions. Every time I remember that point, I inch toward being the person I want to become.
Have you ever fallen victim to premature declarations?
