It’s time for another hot topic and this week are the high expectations that I have always placed on myself. I’m that it has something to do with my OCD but I always expect more from myself than I would from anyone else. I feel like such a failure when I don’t meet those expectations also. Like the world is going to end failure.
It’s funny that I don’t really expect much from others but then I have learned over the years not to. I will do things a million times until I feel that it is perfect. Then do it once again one more time just for good measure. That is something that I am working very hard to learn not to do. I am learning (by force and I’m telling you it is hard as Hades!) to give something my all and not over analyze it. That way I don’t pick it apart and then end up doing five times the amount of work. Sometimes work that really didn’t need to be done again and again. If you have been with me a while then you have seen this first hand from time to time. It is just one my many idiosyncrasies. Yep I know big words too! 😉
