Quote – “The monster under the bed.”
“Trying to live up to expectations is one thing. It can be slain with your own motivation and hard work.
Trying to live up to someone else’s expectations is like confronting a beast. It’s not impossible, t just takes more work and knowing you may fail.
Trying to live up to a parent’s expectations is next to impossible. It’s the monster under the bed, the boogeyman in the closet. Every time you think you have defeated the monster and it’s vanquished for good, it reappears, fiercer than before.”
