Stop expecting you from other people

She had been glum for weeks. Feeling disappointed in herself and in others. She often expected much from herself. And, she had the same expectations of others. She felt let down by people not living up to the high standards she had put in place. But this morning she looked carefully out the window holding her scalding hot coffee. She was preparing for her speech.

Life could be good. Was good. Sure it had its bad moments. Many in fact. However, there was another sunrise and another sunset. There was beauty and awe. And, there was the fact that everyone has their bad moments. She could not expect herself from others. As she would note later in her keynote speech “Stop expecting you from other people”. And, you’ll be happier.
