Secret expectations

Sometimes we ask others to do something for us without acknowledging whether we would do the same for them. We expect others to yield to our expectations of them, whether or not they know what those expectations are.

We expect them to read our minds, to comply, to tell the truth, to see both sides, to remain committed.

What are you asking of others that you would not do yourself? And if you’re not willing to do that, why would you expect them to listen?
