“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.” -Dalai Lama

No one is exempt from carrying with them their own set of limitations.. Despite this knowledge, we hold others to a standard of goodness that often supersedes their abilities. It is not always the intention of others to cause us pain, yet when this unspoken requirement is not met, it often opens the path to discord. We must become aware that the moment we make someone’s shortcomings our burden, we are holding our own selves in captivity through hurt and disappointment. We can only maintain inner peace when we free others from our expectations.

Are you easily disappointed when others don’t meet your expectations? Today is the day to let go and allow others the freedom to be.
