Letter XI Published – Ideals & Expectations

Letter XI published on 3rd July 2019.

Here’s an excerpt:

We look at the people we love and judge their behaviour. We have our own ideals for how we should behave and we expect other people to live up to them. When they don’t, we think they can do better.

We let our ideals become our expectations.

We can’t live like this. We can’t go through each day being frustrated, angry and hateful towards the people we care about the most.

We have to stop wishing for and forcing people to change and accept them for who they are.
