How can I let go of the expectations I put on myself and others?
This has been something that I’ve struggled with for quite some time.
As I have started this personal development journey and living a life that is truly unguarded, I’ve found that I have set myself and those around me to such a high expectation that sometimes it can never be reached. When I do that it leaves me disconnected from the ones I love and I am in constant disappointment. This type of habit is something that doesn’t prove to be beneficial to me or my relationships. My own body even knows that being in control all the time only makes if feel tense, anxious and overwhelmed.
Learning to let go allows me to come from a place of love, where I don’t control the situation or experience, but rather allow it to unfold as it’s meant to be. It allows me to accept people for who they are without trying to make them be something I see for them (myself included). While this is a new process for me, I understand that it takes time and practice and I will be kind with myself as I learn this new way of thinking.
I share my struggles and experiences with you so that you can see that being vulnerable and unguarded is a beautiful thing. We can all learn and grow from each other and be a source of love for the world.
