We want to practice compassion and wisdom, but we cannot expect other people also will be practicing compassion and wisdom, and get frustrated with people who don't practice compassion and wisdom...
We want to give love, care and support to other people, but we cannot expect other people to do the same and give us love, care and support in return, and get angry and frustrated when we don't get the love, care and support that we expected...
We want to be nice and compassionate towards other beings, but we cannot expect other beings will also be nice and compassionate towards us, and get angry and frustrated when other people aren't nice and aren't compassionate towards us...
Nobody is obligated to be nice and compassionate towards anybody. But out of our own will or conscience, we are being nice and compassionate towards all beings including our own self is also one of the beings. Be nice and compassionate towards our own self as well...
We will be angry or frustrated if we have expectation that other people should be nice and compassionate towards ourselves and other beings...
People are being nice and compassionate out of their own wish and conscience, not because we expect them to be nice and compassionate...
Just give and let go.
Be selfless (ego-less) like the sun, the air, the water, the earth and the space.
No attachment, no intention, no expectation, no discrimination...
If we have "good" intention behind our good will and good deeds, and we attach to our actions of being good and compassionate towards other people, having the attachment that we are doing something good, having "good" intention that other people will be receiving something good from us, having expectation that other people will be benefited from our good actions and will be grateful and thankful for our good actions, then we will be so disappointed and frustrated when things turn out not the way that we expected or the way that we think it should be...
Selfless actions or compassionate actions, whether being done for the well-being of our own self or for other beings, are without the influence of likes and dislikes that come from the ego, without attachment, without intention, without expectation, without discrimination...
Let go of that "good" intention as well and be free...
We do good and not doing bad, but we cannot expect other people will also be doing good and not doing bad...
Why do we allow ourselves to be hurt and upset, by being attached and disturbed by what other people do and don't do?
We cannot be angry with other people who cannot help us when we need help, because nobody is obligated to give help to anybody. If somebody wants to help us, it is out of compassion and their own free will, not because they are obliged to give us help when we need one...
Nobody and nothing disappoint us but our own expectation that creates the disappointment in us towards everyone and everything...
Practice compassion and give, but without expectation that other people will also be like us...
Be free. Be happy.

- My husband and I run ongoing yoga retreats in Langkawi Malaysia. We teach traditional Hatha Yoga - a combination of Asanas (postures) and Pranayama (breathing techniques) and relaxation, that has given benefit to millions of practitioners over thousands of years. Our yoga studio is situated in Langkawi. We also run yoga retreats in Europe and India.
