Expectations and Unconditional Love
CONDITION - a state of affairs that must exist or be brought about before something else is possible or permitted; set prior requirements on (something) before it can occur or be done
EXPECTATION - a belief that someone will or should achieve something; FROM EXPECT - to consider bound in duty or obligated;to consider reasonable, due, or necessary
As you see from the definition of both terms, they are synonymous! How many times have you heard this: "You are holding me to unrealistic expectations." Now we have conditions of employment and expectations of job performance. Seems to be unavaoidable in this money-oriented society. In a perfect world, our jobs would be service to others and we would have unconditional love as pay.
For now, we must work to make unconditional love a part of our other relationships with friends and family.
