I was talking to my partner about a simple decision…making coffee or not…without one of us talking to the other one.
So one person decided for both. Let me be clear, this was not a fight, but it was a learning moment in our relationship about how accustomed to routines we have become. Who makes breakfast, who makes coffee, who does the planning etc.
I assumed today would be like every other day and when it wasn’t I almost got mad. Then I took a minute, showed up for myself and communicated the unmet expectation.
And it completely diffused my anger. What’s more, I realized thatI had everything I needed to meet my needs without expecting someone else to do it simply because they usually do.
Our expectations can create our perceived reality.
What expectation can be reframed today to give you more peace?
