today’s dare is something I have been working on..letting go of expectation that has been one of my problems..It’s hard to let go but at least I’m making progress..and when I feel I’m going to fail..I pray to GOD to help me on my weakness..Expectation is one of the hardest attribute to let go of my life..same as my pride..but at least I’m making progress with the help of prayers and my trust on GOD. I know I’m not there yet but at least I’m working and making progress to make myself better through my relationship with GOD.

  • I agree with you about expectations. I am pretty sure I had a whole list of them when we first go married. LOL. Since, I have been doing the LoveDare challenges I have been learning to let go of those expectations. Your last sentence made me think of the scripture..."Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

  • And it feels great to really let go of it..we had not fought since 2 weeks ago..eversince I decided to really let it go and just trust GOD..let my jealousy, expectations and anger go..I feel great..we also kinda talk a lot more with no friction..she still dont sleep on our bedroom but at least we are talking more since she told me she wants out of our marriage. She even told me where she will be tomorrow and what she will do..which was kinda surprising coz she never tells me. I stopped asking her too coz she ends up angry at me..well, anyway, today has been a good day..no expectation for tomorrow,.I will just continue what I’m doing everyday..do the dare and be with kids..and never forget to pray

  • Keep working. Pray a lot and study God's Word. Expectations are impossible to completely eliminate. But continue to work toward that. All they do is cause heartache. Pride, selfishness and patience are also very unhealthy. God says plenty about these so get into His Word and fill your heart with Him.

    "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall."

    Proverbs 16:18

  • As you continue living in what the dares teach, the time between fights will grow, and your natural inclination to have expectations, follow pride, and anger will further diminish.  And you will continue to grow in God which will continue and grow the peace and joy in God that you have.  

    Keep going, the journey does not end, as you already know.

  • Expectation is really hard to get rid of but at least I have better control of myself now..unlike before..my patience had improved too..Most of the time now..when things get heated I just bite my tongue and keep quite..Yes, there will ne times I raise my voice..I’m just human, I’m not perfect..and I’m still working to improve myself..but this rarely happens now..thanks again..

  • You are not alone. Expectations and pride are haunting. All I can say is read about them every single day. In your Bible and anything else you can get hold of. Keep reminding yourself to count others as more significant than yourself.

    "Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. "

    Philippians 2:3
