Painful expectations

Painful expectations 
For unknown reasons, my mom started retaining some water. So, she was prescribed a diuretic. The nurse told her that she would be up all night going to the bathroom.
Well, that did not happen, and it caused my mom to stress out, worry, and think that something was wrong.
Expectations created pain and suffering.
I see two morals in this little story. 1) We should be mindful of what expectations we create. If the nurse had said, “you will probably go to the bathroom a lot but not necessarily,” mom probably would have had a very different experience. (Later the doctor said that it was a small dose, so she wasn’t surprised that mom wasn’t up all night.)
The second moral is – how quickly can we let go of expectations and deal with what is right in front of us. If we demand that reality meets our preconceived expectations, we will frequently suffer.
Much Love,
