Unrealistic Expectations of Others…
All of us deal with relational misunderstanding, conflict, hurt, misjudgment and rejection.
It never works to turn a person into your personal messiah. It never works to look to another for your identity.
It never works to ask people to give you meaning and purpose. It is unrealistic to look to someone for inner peace.
It never goes well when you ask another flawed human being to be the source of your happiness.
There is an ever-faithful Messiah, and no one around you is capable of taking His place and doing for you what He alone can do.
When we elevate people too high in our hearts and when they fail us, our suffering is intensified.
