Never get too attached to anyone! Yes, you do not probably realize it until and unless you come up with the broken pieces of your heart. It is important to understand that expectations keep on hurting our own selves.
We expect something from the other person, and when things do not turn up according to that, we start feeling broken deep inside. You must not get too attached to anyone. Let the other person feel the same about you as well.
You should have the ability to make out whether or not the other person has got similar kinds of feelings for you, as you have for him or her. It is never a one-sided game. You should be able to have your turn, but at the same time, the other person should be turning up as well.
One-sided expectations can mentally destroy you, and this is very much true. When you keep on expecting from the other person and none of your wishes actually get fulfilled, that’s when you start feeling disheartened.
It feels as if the earth has torn apart and you do not have anyone by your side. This is when you realize that it was you who had built the castle of cards, the other person didn’t make any contribution to it.
It is okay if you are the one who keeps on doing things first and takes the upper hand all the time, but no relationship can ever be successful if it is all about a single person doing things all the time.
The other person should make contributions to it as well. Never allow anyone else to be the reason for your heartache. You should not allow anyone to bother you emotionally or psychologically.
