Overcoming Living Up to Others’ Expectations — The Parker J Cole Show
I think all of us, to some degree, want to make people happy. Not everyone in the whole world, but those who make up our little world. Our parents, our friends, our co-workers, etc. We want people to be proud of us and we want to be helpful when the time comes.
This can come with downside. We can become so obsessed with being helpful, friendly, nice, kind, or whatever it is, that we start to live for others’ expectations of ourselves. I know some of us may say, “Uh, Parker, you’ve got it wrong. I don’t live up to anyone’s expectations and if they don’t like it, they can lump it.”
Is that really true? What if you’re already doing it and you don’t even know it? Do you find yourself exhausted, and disillusioned when you can’t complete a task or fulfil an errand for someone? Do you find yourself doing that all the time?
How can we overcome living up to others’ expectations?
