Expectations

Purple Star - this article is new and awaiting 10 votes!

Have you ever looked at someone and thought I want to be just like them. You feel so worthless, and have no faith in yourself that you've completely given up, and instead of trying to heal the wounds you result to comparing yourself to someone else, digging deeper into the abyss we call our expectations. If you spent your life concentrating on what everyone else thought of you, you would forget who you really were? What if the face you showed the world turned out to be a mask... with nothing beneath it? And you simply wear this mask because it's the easiest way out. And your so afraid of ever taking off that mask that you yourself cannot even tell the difference between your true self and your masked self. Undoubtedly if you expect nothing from yourself you will never be disappointed. It's easier said than done, often everything is easier said than done. They say you are your own worst enemy. And if you can learn to stop expecting impossible perfection, in yourself and in others, you may find the happiness that has always eluded you. The places you go in life depends on the choices you make now, the choices you make at a young age. And in order to follow your dreams you have to work, and try and believe.I personally have always found it hard to live up to expectations, set not by the world, not by my parents, but by myselfI would then try to be better than them at something else, my escape was and still is dance. It doesn't sound as great as amazing grades, but it's good enough for me, or at least that's what I tell myself.Expectations as a whole make the building blocks of life. They tear you apart and hurt you immensely. But without them you would not strive to be a better version of yourself. Without them you would not feel the failure that then teaches you your mistakes, that you eventually will learn from.
