Expectations

20130826-211744.jpg

“We don’t need anyone else to criticise us. We have so many superhuman expectations of ourselves that the expectations of others pale into insignificance. We really believe that we should be able to handle everything. We really believe we should know everything. We really believe that we should be on top of everything. When we are caught unprepared, instead of just admitting it, we either get defensive or feel guilty. It rarely occurs to us just to admit we are unprepared. We feel we should always be prepared for anything.” – Brenda Ueland

Does this sound familiar?
