The word SHOULD indicates an expectation, an obligation, a duty, and is typically used when criticizing someone. And usually when we “should” on others we have an expectation that they be LIKE US. And not only do we think they should be, think, or do like us, we expect them to be the perfect version of us. We have a personal set of rules of how people should conduct their lives. And when they don’t, it totally sets us up for anger, negativity, and disappointment. Talk about a set up for failure! Right?
But when we drop the “shoulds” or the expectations we have of people, and just LOVE them we are able to create much better results in our lives, better relationships, and better marriages.
