Brooke and Kel try to help a listener who finds herself weighed down by the expectations of others, making it much harder to live a life according to her values.
Today’s episode is another one based on a listener email, this time from someone struggling under the weight of others’ expectations.
Kelly has some fantastic insights into both how to deal with these expectations and how to frame them when we start to feel overwhelmed. As well as highly practical ways of facing up to the issue rather than letting it fester and become a bigger issue than it needs to be.
While Brooke is a huge proponent of the motto, “Not my problem,” she understands that it’s undeniably more complicated than that and suggests tapping in to our priorities in order to see what we will and won’t feel pressured by.
It’s another curly one, and the girls have a great chat about their own experiences in managing expectations, as well as the lessons they’ve learnt over the years.
