Expectation Vs Reality Comparisons Where the Result Turned Out Better Than Expected

The ‘expectation vs reality memes has been around for some time. We often see people sharing their own experiences of being robbed of their happiness because things just didn’t go as they expected. While many of us can relate to their utter disappointment, these experiences sometimes serve as a wake-up call that reality doesn’t always live up to our high standards. However, not all of these experiences are bad. In fact, there are also things that may exceed your expectations.

So, today we are focusing on the moments when our request gets taken very literally. Well, it’s a fact that when we buy something, we expect it to be as good as they’re advertised. Or when we make DIY stuff out of a recipe or instructions, we expect to achieve the same result as shown. But in reality, it’s quite the opposite. However, if you’re lucky, you may end up getting more than you bargained for. Some people obviously fall into the latter. And this just proves that reality isn’t all that ‘harsh’ after all. While there are many disappointments and failures along the way, it always helps to focus on the positive side!

Therefore we compiled a list of images that exceeded expectations. You will find awesome bakes, photos, and more. So, scroll down below to check them out, and make sure to upvote your favorite.

In class, I learned that when I don’t understand something, someone else probably does. It’s more useful to learn someone’s perspective in a field than to force your perspective and fail miserably.

That’s the moral lesson to be learned in this viral Twitter thread by Gennifer Hutchison. For her, there are things that male historians and anthropologists get wrong because they usually don’t involve women’s perspectives in their research.
