Too often, we set a wrong expectation for ourselves:
- We must be promoted to that rank to be seen as respectable
- We must buy that luxury to be seen as rich
- We must gain that number of followers to be seen as popular
We forget we are doing all these for others who don't care about us.
We forget we have not served ourselves to do what we truly want to do.
Wrong expectation makes us suffer and sets us back further from our goals.
