Are your expectations of others stressing you out?
I recently underwent a huge life change, returning back to my roots in the UK after 15 years in Asia. It’s been a huge transition and I’m feeling quite ‘out of body’ most the time.
I’m noticing a lot of emotional pain in the people around me (myself included). I see this coming from people’s expectations of how others ‘should’ behave. I’ve noticed this is causing the person who’s having these expectations the most pain. It’s like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die from it. How others behave is simply out of our own control.
