I used to prepare well for all my exams.I'll also attend all questions correctly. I would be eagerly waiting for the result.I will be amazed at that time.But unfortunately I won't get the level of marks what I was expecting. Those times are really very hard. From then I stopped the habit of expecting. Have you ever had experience like this?If so do share...

Hey gorgeous! Allow me to reveal a secret here - it's good to stop expecting and it's for the best when you learn that early. Expecting and accepting are complementary. The moment we stop expecting is the moment we start accepting. It's when we begin to see reality clearly and begin to draw the pattern of the strings which by then had been invisible to us i.e. we begin to realize our faults and flaws. And that's absolutely alright. There is nothing wrong in falling because unless you fall, you don't really get the opportunity to rise. but that does not mean that you quit. Quitting is never an option, no matter how low you feel. Yes, I've been a failure too. and not just once. I had dreamed of becoming a doctor and had worked hard for it but my dream shattered way too early when no school would let me choose science as my subject for my higher studies. I accepted and compromised with the situation. And went with the flow. i chose Commerce as my subjects and thought of opting for Economics for my graduation. But again, the mighty Fate came in between. In spite of scoring a 96 in both Mathematics and Economics, I couldn't see my name in any list of the colleges I had planned to do my graduation from. May be I just had the habit of dreaming big, I thought and moved on. from no where, without any plans, I landed in the field of Literature. That was perhaps the only moment in my life when I had no plans, no thoughts, no hopes, and well, no expectations. I just accepted the turn of events and went with the flow. And today when I look back, I look back not in anger but with intense gratitude. My subject changed my life, changed me as a person, and see here I'm sharing my experience on this platform with you. Stop expecting but don't be a pessimist. Never. Being stoic is fine. Being optimist is the best. Regards, Medha.
