Managing expectations is a sore point for me. A lot of the pain comes from my inability to say no, my fear to disappoint.
The fear to disappoint becomes a self-defeating prophecy. Coupled with how easily it is to scare/intimidate me (”gertak”) into saying yes.
(I’ve given up trying to say no, more or less.)
Must I do better? Of course. Will I do better? I …don’t know.
I hope I can. I’m trying.
(though it kinda feels like I’m failing.)
