Hello Evie, Michelle, everyone xxxx
I have just joined you all this evening, and I am finding my way around this lovely forum. Just what I have read so far, says so very much, especially about expectations and expectancy!
I have spent most of my life, trying to live up to the expectations of various people, trying to be what they wanted/needed or expected me to be, and of course, always failing miserably! Now, at almost 60 years of age - I have at last realised that the only answer is to simply 'be'. To be the best I can be, being 'me' - and if other people have a problem with that, then it is their problem, not mine.
Time for me to go to bed now, but I look forward so much to visiting you all again xxx
