What do people expect from me?

Sometimes I stop and wonder, what do people expect from me? This world has a set of standards and things that’s already been set as “the normal”. Example: You go to college, you get a job, you get married,have kids,work for 30 years, retire, then stay home until you die. People expect we do that, its like a comfort zone, but what happens when we decide to do it different?

The people around us will always have something to say and give you every kind of excuse to make you believe that what you want can’t happen,and there is where you and I start to feel sad and lost. We want to make others happy, and sometimes comes to a real fight to try to make everyone happy including ourselves.

We are all different, we have different ways to think. I think that we must learn to lose the fear of what people will think about us and begin to accept who we are inside. People will expect you to be successful after you go to college, and probably in something you are not really passionate about,if thats your case. I know, believe I know, how hard this is and right now I’m on that stage. Honestly, I don’t know what to do with my life, but I know I will succeed when I stop caring about what people expect from me and start doing what I expect myself to be.

  1. The question shouldn’t be what others expect, it’s you and only you who need to fulfill your own expectations.

    Whatever you decide to do, people will always have something to say… May it be positive or negative.

    …You’re not the only one who feel like this. We’ve all been there and we have to find the courage to follow our heart. You only have to know where to look for it.
