What expectations do you have for your life? Do they correspond to reality?
Are you living with expectations that will never be, that leave you constantly disappointed, that taint your life with grudges, unhappiness and continual anxiety?
It is time for a reality check, a truth telling session with yourself so you can stop expending energy on fixing and rescuing others who cannot or don’t want to be rescued.
Perhaps you will find in your truth telling session that you have been striving to keep up false appearances, that life is not turning out the way you had planned or expected.
Perhaps you realize you have been on the trail of expected rewards for many years only to find they are not so rewarding once you achieve them.
Ask your heart for the truth in all areas of your life. Do not lie to yourself or let the ego or the icy grip of fear take over.
This truth telling session with yourself will take courage, stamina and integrity and most of all, self compassion and understanding.
