Another’s Expectations

Another’s Expectations

There is little more challenging than trying to please others. Undoubtedly you’ve noticed that most people have opinions and many aren’t afraid to share it with us. They have opinions about where we should live, how we should live and even with whom we should live. If we’re not careful, these mental intrusions can create inner chaos. We confuse outer voices with our true desires and wishes. We begin to doubt ourselves. Be careful to set healthy boundaries so that people know when they can, and cannot, share their opinions about our lives. My suggestion is that others do this by invitation only.
