Expectations can push us to be better and improve ourselves, but they can also be painful. In order to please others and protect the connections you care about, you must meet these expectations. We are all humans, but we are still humans, and we expect a lot from ourselves.
Most of the time, our expectations are so high and unrealistic that they don't meet reality's standards and only tear us apart. I've always thought that people expect too much from me, and at the end of the day, I try to deliver on what they ask because I don't want to disappoint them or myself, but I usually fall short, and when we don't meet these expectations, we feel lost.
No one wants to be a failure in their own eyes or in the eyes of others! Most of the time, we lose ourselves in the process of meeting other people's expectations because we care so much about them that we overlook our own desires. Expecting things from yourself and others is fine, but don't expect too much from anyone, especially yourself, because expectations can sometimes be too good to be true, leading to frustration and disappointment.
We have expectations because we are attached to changing things over which we have no control most of the time because we want to see things in a new light, but we forget that not everything is supposed to be the way we want it to be!
