Man do I remember the pressures of trying to live up to others expectations of me. I also remember the disappointed feelings when I didn’t measure up. Failure became the only way of life. It was “The Norm”. At least that way I didn’t have to worry about pressure any more.

That kind of thinking eventually led me to believe that I was worthless, hopeless and a complete and utter failure. I wouldn’t even make a wholehearted attempt anymore. I was feeling defeated before I even started. My self esteem was so low that children had higher hopes. I was lost and alone.

Or so I thought.

Today I am totally the opposite. I am happy, joyous and free. My self esteem and self worth are climbing and I no longer feel lost, lonely or defeated. I have purpose today. I do not try to live up to other people’s expectations of me. I also do not place unrealistic expectations on myself. I am allowed to live my life today, One day at a time. Without the worry or pressure. Living in the moment has given me a freedom I have never experienced before.

I will not let others expectations of me dictate my life or my actions today.

I’m doing me.

Peace and Blessings
