I previously wrote about how you can manage your expectations of other people while maintaining realistic interpretations. Have you considered that the expectations of your life stem from societal milestones for your age bracket, gender, and perceived level of success? I’ve found that false self-expectations and not living in your truth is the ultimate issue beyond keeping up with the Jones’.
Here’s are my notes for restructuring; maybe you’ll find them useful:
Your perception of “perfection” will be challenged by life, societal constructs, and the lies you tell yourself.(Be you)
The nature of a goal is to create change, and feelings of insecurity and sadness are normal. (Renew your mind)
No is a complete sentence, and inner confidence will make room for acceptance and criticism. (Get ready)
Never encourage self-loading and isolation because of fear; healthy confrontation is a necessary skill. (Learn a new life skill)
Seek out people who are suitable and compatible with your purpose and assignment choose carefully; your life depends on it. (Cultivate high-quality relationships)
Personal peace affords you to grow, develop, and live your life experiences, not anyone else. (Let go)
Inner turmoil is an indication of a false belief you have maintained to justify limited thinking. (Challenge your beliefs).
I could add more to these notes, but I think you have a good idea of the why and how to restructure self-expectations as it is the foundation to develop solid goals worthy of the life you deserve, keep evolving!
