I suppose we all have that to a certain extent. Expectations, both from others and from ourselves. We project what we believe is the ideal onto others. We project what we believe others perceive as ideal onto ourselves.
Expectations, real or imagined. Expectations, set them too high, and you get disappointed. Expectations, set them too low, and you miss the point.
Do expectations give us an opportunity to become better people? Or do expectations drag us down into dark dungeons?
Don’t let expectations choke you… one can breathe so much easier without expectations.
