成语故事:一厢情愿 Wishful thinking

一厢情愿
yī xiāng qíng yuàn

Wishful thinking

一 here means one, 厢 means wing, like the one in the wing-room, here means one side. 情愿is willing. 一厢情愿 is used to describe that someone indulge himself in wishful thinking.

Literal meaning: someone to indulge himself in wishful thinking

E.g

在他的领导下指望有什么深层次的变革就是一厢情愿。

zài tā de lǐng dǎo xià zhǐ wàng yǒu shén me shēn céng cì de biàn gé jiù shì yī xiāng qíng yuàn 。

It is wishful thinking to expect deeper change under his leadership.
