More Happiness By Expecting Less
"Expecting less" is one of the ten rules on how to be happy. This rule is stressed because it is definitely one of the top three rules that need to be followed in order to be happy.
When life doesn't go your way, you are not happy. In life, you, as in a human being, tend to expect things in a positive way. But when things don't go as planned, your happiness takes a beating. This can apply to many things: your girlfriend/boyfriend breaking up with you all of a sudden, you didn't get into your dream college, your car breaks down in between the morning rush. When this happens, your heart and mind says to you, "How in the world did this happen?" That is when your overall happiness begins to diminish.
It doesn't have to be one big thing either. It can be many discrepancies all piled up into a time period, eventually making you feel that life is against you.
To fix this, expect less. Lower your standards in life and make things attainable. When you lower your standards of happiness, even the littlest things can make you happy.
