Make a list of the expectations that you feel, you and others may have placed on you.
I felt for a long time that so many of my family members expected me to meet a partner, get married and have a baby.
No judgement to anyone that has done this but it's like we perceive this as the normal thing to do. It just at the time didn't feel like that was the path or journey for me.
It didn’t feel right. Deep in my heart I wanted to travel, work and get to know myself, as I felt lost when I finished school. I had a calling to help others and experience a range of opportunities but I always felt people were watching me and hoping I would drop all this and do what society teaches us is normal.
What expectations do you feel are placed on you by yourself and others?
