This audio note is a bit long but I would like to thing its a message we all need to hear. We spend so much time living up to other people expectations – not just in work but also in our personal lives. What happens when we make a decision for ourselves that are not accepted by others or that hurt others? We may not be living up to their expectations but what about the expectation we set for ourselves? It is so easy for people to judge. I know that if my support systems truly believe in me, they will understand, maybe not right away but this is where benefit of the doubt comes in.
We need more of that. We need more courage, confidence and faith in ourselves – less reliance on others to define our identity for us.
