Most people are happiest when they live up to no one’s expectations but their own. Only problem with that is that we very rarely live up to our own expectations. We are so caught up with getting other people’s approval that we forget about the things that make us happy.
I find myself in many situations where I’m worried about disappointing others that I unknowingly find myself doing things to satisfy them. I become engulfed by the need to not disappoint that I become almost robotic.
Well I’m done with that. I have been working on my self awareness of these habits and trying to prevent myself from becoming that. So far I would say its doing me well. When I find myself feeling this way I talk it out and make it known that certain situations make me feel a certain way.
I am living to no one’s expectations but my own. The people who truly matter love you for this person anyway so stop trying to be the person you think they want you to be and just be the person they love and thats you. Happy Friday! :)
