Need help with having zero expectations

Expect and you'll get disappointed. 

With people, relationships and things. 

I expected something to go a certain way today and it didn't. I got angry. The other person was not aware of my expectations. He got upset. 

As irrational animals, we think people think the same way we do. 

I prioritised reading articles he sent over checking social media. He likes reading these articles over downtime. 

I created an invisible rule that shared articles should be read first. He didn't know the rule. Of course he 'broke' it. 

Why do we cause such misery to ourselves? 

How do we not expect? 

Please share your tips with me.


Love,
