Some time we are our own worse enemy. We expect more from ourselves then we do others or than others expect from us. Why? Why are we harder on ourselves and expect more? Is our focus of reality fuzzy?
Being too hard on ourselves has the reverse affect of being counter productive. Nothing is ever good enough, we don’t enjoy anything and we put so much pressure on ourselves that we make ourselves depressed.
It good to have expectations and it is good to work with in the frame work of those expectations but when they are so deep to the point that we do more harm to ourselves then we need to step back and refocus and keep our expectations based on reality.
